Gurmeet Choudhary’s recent trip to Pattaya with wife Debina Bonnerjee for his birthday celebration didn’t end on a good note. While the couple was shopping at a local market on the final day of their trip, Gurmeet’s travel bag went missing.
“I was trying something and suddenly realised that my bag was not there. I tried looking for it and asked people around, but it was gone. It turns out a group of thieves function in that area. I was lucky that my passport was with Debina as we had to travel back to India the same evening,” says Gurmeet.
Unfortunately, Gurmeet lost cash worth Rs 60,000 and a few personal belongings, including a pair of sunglasses worth Rs 1 lakh. “Blocking my credit and debit cards was the first thing I did after returning to the hotel. It was really shocking, as I am always careful about my belongings. It all happened in a few minutes. I am still a little shaken,” Gurmeet informs adding that he hasn't lodged a police complaint.
“I let the matter go. I was on my way to the airport and I had to make it for the trailer launch of my film,” he concludes.
