Television actor Karanvir Bohra, in a tweet remembering former foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, who died of a cardiac arrest on Tuesday night, said that Ms Swaraj ‘never made any Indian feel alienated when in trouble in a foreign land.’ He recounted the time when then Sushma Swaraj-led Ministry of External Affairs came to the actor’s rescue after he was detained for travelling with a damaged passport. “Shocked to hear that Sushma Swaraj ji passed away, a woman who worked hard for the betterment of our country. She never made any Indian feel alienated when in trouble in a foreign land. (Like in Russia, if it wasn’t for Sushma ji I would have been impounded) #RIPSushmaJi #Jaihind,” Karanvir tweeted.
