Zeenat Aman stranded

Veteran actor Zeenat Aman, who was flying with the media and crew to attend the 14th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards, was stranded at Hong Kong airport on July 4.

The media was stranded for a long time at the airport as it took time to trace the luggage of all the travelling personnel before they could travel onward in a ferry to Macau, the festival venue. We spotted Aman waiting in the queue for the ferry. The actor again waited patiently for a long time to get her luggage at Macau before heading to her hotel.

Abhishek, Shahid go unrecognised

We spotted Abhishek Bachchan and Shahid Kapoor at Macau airport. They arrived together for the IIFA awards. The actors travelled on a direct flight to Macau. And though there were a lot of people at the airport at the time, no one seemed to recognise the stars.

We just saw one girl who recognised Shahid and screamed out his name. Overall, however, the two managed to leave the airport hassle-free and took a car for their hotel.
