The Airlift star was then asked to wait at the general area for more than an hour while the airport officials sorted the issue.
Officials at Heathrow apparently informed the tabloid that while as per their rules, it was not necessary for a Canadian national visiting the UK as a tourist to carry a valid visa, Akshay's case was different because he was there for shooting. In fact, it was the actor's response to the 'purpose of visit' that got him detained at the airport.
