Bollywood singer Adnan Sami faced a rather strange welcome in Kuwait where the immigration staff at the airport were allegedly caught misbehaving, calling him and his staff "Indian dogs."

Sami took to twitter and said "“We came 2 ur city wt luv & our Indian brethren embraced us with it. U gave no support. Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff 4 no reason & called thm ‘Indian Dogs’! Wn u wr contacted u did nothing!! How dare d Kuwaitis behave like this with arrogance?!” hr wrote to Indian Embassy in Kuwait as well as External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. 


Soon after the Foreign Minister came to the rescue and asked him to call her. MoS Home Kiren Rijiju wrote: “Sorry to learn that @AdnanSamiLive. Our most dynamic EAM @SushmaSwaraj ji has acknowledged your matter. Pls speak to her now.”

Sami replied Adnan Sami also thanked Kiren Rijiju: “Thank you so much for your concern my dear. @SushmaSwaraj is a lady full of heart & she is in touch with me & is looking after our people.. I’m so proud that she is our foreign minister & looks after us all over the world.”


The singer had previously expressed his excitement to perform for the first time there. Sami was in Kuwait for his first ever live performance organised by Indian Cultural Society at American International School, Maidan Hawalli.
