Due to work commitments, Sacred Games actor Elnaaz Norouzi had to visit Los Angles, however, the actress didn't receive a warm welcome from the country. Recently, the actress who had to visit LA was stopped by the Airport officers. As the actress is an Iranian, Elnaaz was double-checked and the officers interrogated her for a very long time.
Speaking to Times Now, Elnaaz said, “I had to stay in immigration for more than 3 hours or so and I was stopped by the officers to board my connecting flight. I hold a German passport and so I do not require a visa to travel to the United States. But due to my Iranian roots, I applied for a normal visa as Trump has put some ban on Iranis and they do not get ESTA anymore and that's why they wanted to double-check on everything," says the actress.
"I was made to wait and they asked a lot of questions and due to the lengthy interrogation session, I missed out on my connecting flight. The next flight was after 6 hours so I had to wait at the airport for quite long and it felt like this journey was never-ending. It was quite tiring but all is fine now and now I am looking forward to meeting a few important agents in LA, now that I am finally here,” she further said.
