A Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 registered 9V-SMH from Singapore to Mumbai as flight SQ422 was cleared for approach on runway 09 at Mumbai airport on Monday morning (4 December). At around 1,000 feet and due to low visibility the pilots decided to go-around, media reports however say that the pilots where approaching nearby runway 08 at the airfield of Juhu, mainly used for general aviation and helicopters.

Looking at the track on FR24, and AVHerald, this would seem like another fabrication by the Indian media, picked up by others, to boost their sales.
They've been known to do it before, and they will do it again.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Yeah! It would have been strange if RSCA had been flown in the red colours of #Trident OO-SNA ;)

Seems like I'll need to eat my own words. After a bit more investigation by members of PPRuNe, amongst others, (link here), and specifically this image, it seems like they were actually on final for Juhu after all.
Then again, the crew noticed they were not aligned with the correct runway (not the correct airport, in this case), and performed a missed approach, by the book.
Haze and flying into the sun may have been a factor.

Errare humanum est.
