Mar 29, 2011 IANS

New Delhi, March 29 (IANS) Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla was left disappointed when she was denied a chance to carry her tanpura (music instrument) as cabin baggage in a flight from Sydney to Melbourne recently.

The actress, who was in Australia to promote her forthcoming release "I Am", is taking music lessons these days and is quite devoted to it. So, she wanted to keep the instrument safe with her, but the airline insisted on tagging it as fragile, and keeping it with the rest of the baggage, said a source, but didn't name the airline.

Juhi agreed, but she was upset to find a big hole in the instrument after the flight.

"Juhi was very attached to her tanpura and was very upset to see it damaged. Nevertheless, she took it like a sport and continued with the promotion bit," added the source.

Onir's "I Am" will release in India April 22.
