Union Minister Smriti Irani was to be a special guest on the set of The Kapil Sharma Show. The politician-turned-actress has recently started writing with her book ‘Lal Salaam’. For the book’s promotion and interaction, Smriti was to be a special guest on the show.
However, when she reached the set of the show, she was stopped by the security guards. According to a news portal, the reason she was stopped by the guards was that she did not travel with any security. This can create confusion in the mind of the security guard. While Smriti tried her best to convince the guard that she was going to be a guest on the show and also a Union Minister, she did not believe him. The guard claimed that such senior ministers do not travel alone and are accompanied by security personnel and a police force.
Smriti kept explaining to the Iranian guard and waited for half an hour. After that, he decided to leave because he had a flight to Delhi. Reports also claim that neither Smriti nor Kapil was aware of any of this. As soon as Kapil Sharma found out about the whole incident, he scolded the guard and apologized to Smriti Irani.
