Apparently, Dhawan’s family was asked to show birth certificates and some other documents as identification proofs, which they weren’t carrying. The opener then showed his frustration on his twitter account.

He tweeted: “Absolutely unprofessional from Emirates. I was on my way 2 SA with my family & was told that my wife and kids can’t board the flight from Dubai to SA. I was asked to produce birth certificates & other documents for my kids at the airport which we obviously didn’t have at that moment.”

In another tweet, he said: “They are now at Dubai airport waiting for the documents to arrive. Why didn’t @emirates notify about such a situation when we were boarding the plane from Mumbai? One of the emirates’ employee was being rude for no reason at all.”
