Adnan Sami, who was in Kuwait for a live performance, claimed that Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated and behaved arrogantly with his staff for no reason.
"We came to your city with love and our Indian brethren embraced us with it. You gave no support. Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff for no reason and called them 'Indian dogs'!
