It seems like stars need to prep themselves for all kinds of sticky situations while travelling these days. Sources close to the actor revealed that Akshay Kumar had to face the NYPD on his recent trip to New York! So what charge was the Khiladi booked under?

Reported by zoOm, Khiladi Kumar was leaving a mall post a shopping spree when he was halted by an NYPD officer! When asked to pull over and confirm his identity, Akshay Kumar got a little worried.
