Iranian actress and model Elnaaz Norouzi rose to fame after her character Zoya in popular web series ‘Sacred Games’ caught everyone’s attention. Recently, the actress went through a horrible experience when she was in the US for her work commitments. The actress shared her ordeal and blamed ‘lengthy interrogation’ for missing her flight in Chicago.


Elnaaz, who was looking forward to her US trip, got into trouble after landing in Chicago. The actress missed out her connecting flight from Chicago as she was stopped by the authorities who wanted to wanted to ‘double-check’ everything. The actress had to go through a lengthy immigration interrogation before she was finally released.

Talking about her ordeal, Elnaaz told Mid-Day, “Yes, I had to stay in immigration for more than 3 hours or so and I was stopped by the officers to board my connecting flight. I hold a German passport and so I do not require a visa to travel to the United States. But due to my Iranian roots, I applied for a normal visa as Trump has put some ban on the Iranis and they do not get ESTA anymore and that’s why they wanted to double-check on everything.”


She further added, “I was made to wait and they asked a lot of questions and due to the lengthy interrogation session, I missed out on my connecting flight. The next flight was after 6 hours so I had to wait at the airport for quite long and it felt like this journey was never-ending. It was quite tiring but all is fine now and now I am looking forward to meeting a few important agents in LA now that I am finally here.”

We hope Elnaaz has a fruitful stay in the US as reportedly she is there to explore some work opportunities.
