Renowned singer Adnan Sami had gone to Kuwait for a concert accompanied by his staff members but wasn't received very warmly at the Airport. In fact, his staff members were mishandled by the immigration officers and called 'Indian Dogs', the singer conveyed through a tweet.

He wrote, "We came to your city with love and our Indian brethren embraced us with it. You gave no support. Kuwaiti airport immigration mistreated my staff for no reason and called them 'Indian Dogs'! When you were contacted you did nothing!! How dare d Kuwaitis behave like this with arrogance?!"

Notably, Adnan didn't forget to tag the Indian embassy in Kuwait while tweeting. Soon after the singer tweet about his ordeal, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj asked him to call her. Sami was delighted with Sushma's prompt reply and thanked her for the support.

After talking to Sushma, Adnan replied to Rijiju stating, "Thank you so much for your concern my dear. Sushma Swaraj is a lady full of heart and she is in touch with me and is looking after our people. I'm so proud that she is our foreign minister and looks after us all over the world."
