British actor Orlando Bloom has been allowed entry into India after being turned away a day earlier from New Delhi’s international airport because he did not have a valid visa, officials said Monday.

The “Lord of the Rings” star was able to enter India after the External Affairs ministry intervened and gave him a special visa.

Bloom was invited by the top elected official of Uttar Pradesh state to promote tourism. He applied for an e-visa and arrived Saturday without realizing there was a problem with his application.

Bloom was forced to return to London but arrived in India the following day and was seen posing at the Taj Mahal on Sunday.

An External Affairs ministry spokesman said Bloom must have landed without the confirmation e-mail or forgotten to check whether the visa had been granted.

Indian politician Amar Singh made sure as the perfect host that Bloom visited the Taj and apparently, the actor thought, “It was amazing”!

The Hollywood actor apparently also had a get-together with the A-listers from B-town, at a party arranged by Amar Singh on Sunday Night. Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, who are close friends of Amar Singh were also known to have had their moment of fame with the Hollywood icon.

Bloom is best known for his performances in “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies. He has also played roles in such Hollywood blockbuster films as “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Troy” and “Kingdom of Heaven.”
