Chopper for Saif Ali Khan's ad lands without permission, 2 held
A helicopter to be used for the shooting of an advertisement featuring actor Saif Ali Khan was sealed Saturday by the police as it landed at a Jaipur hotel helipad without prior permission of local authorities.
Saif was in the hotel when the chopper landed, a senior official said. Two local coordinators of the shooting event, Ajay Sharma and Rajesh Kumar, were arrested and booked under various sections of the IPC, Additional Police Commissioner, Girraj Meena, told reporters.
The local coordinators were denied permission as the helipad in Shiv Vilas Hotel on Jaipur-Delhi highway was not safe for landing, Meena said, adding that they were intimated for the same in a written communication Friday.
However, the coordinators allegedly tampered with the document and e-mailed it to the aviation company saying that the local authorities have given clearance for the landing, the police official said.
On the basis of the doctored document, the helicopter landed at the helipad in the hotel, Meena said. The helicopter flew in from Chandigarh, he said, adding it was to be used for the advertisement. It was sealed at the spot, he said.
