India boots starlet, rocking 3 films

Khan lacked work visa

MBAI — Three Bollywood helmers were left scrambling after Mumbai police deported starlet Negar Khan to her Norway home late Monday.

The Iranian-born Khan was in India on a tourist visa, which doesn’t allow her to work.

Khan has three films in various stages of completion: helmers Raj Kaushal’s “Double Cross — ek dhokha” (Double Cross — A Betrayal), Govind Mishra’s “Hello kaun hai” (Hello Who Is It?) and Akram Sheikh’s “Short Circuit.” Budgets for the three amount to around $2.3 million.

Khan shot to fame with the raunchy musicvideo of the remixed Bollywood song “Chadti jawaani” (Rising Youth) in 2003. Unlike Indian stars, she has fewer reservations about being scantily clad and performing steamy scenes in Bollywood films.

She made her debut in Kaushal’s 2004 pic “Shaadi ka laddoo” (Wedding Cake). She was seen later that year in Mani Shankar’s “Rudraksh” (2004).

Maharashtra state deputy chief minister R. R. Patil said, “It is not possible to keep a check on each and every person but if we are aware of any persons who violate visa norm, they will not be spared.”

Khan claimed to be married to an Indian and said her papers were in order. Immigration officials said she had been warned last year that she was misusing her visa status.
