“Special thanks to Sushma Swaraj and all the officials for the prompt actions taken to help me. I have been given a temporary passport and visa for my stay. I am extremely happy to be in Russia for attending a festival that celebrates and honours Indian films,” he added.

The actor was last seen in the show “Bigg Boss 12”. He is now looking forward to the release of his film “Hume Tumse Pyar Kitna”, expected to release later this year.
