In the video, one can see Katy and members of her ignored security person at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, despite his instructions to produce their passports. After the singer walks past the security person, he tried to restrict a male member of her team from entering the terminal.

Well, this gesture from Katy Perry and her team indeed sparked outrage on Twitter as netizens started slamming the singer on social media.

“This utter disregard of airport security check should be brought to the notice of administrators,” one person commented. “Yes she is an international superstar but that gives her no right to disobey Indian laws and security protocols,” wrote another.

“@katyperry that was rude, this is #India and not your home. Imagine if you would have done the same in your country with your own policemen, you would have been in detention centre for refusing to show passport,” one person commented under the video.

The American pop star was joined at the concert by Dua Lipa, Amit Trivedi, Ritviz, The Local Train and Aswekeepsearching.
