Actor Ayesha Takia has expressed her strong-worded displeasure over alleged misdemeanor on part of the ground staff of Kingfisher Airlines with her younger sister Natasha at Delhi airport yesterday evening.
"The worst airline, Kingfisher!!!shockingly baddddddddddd airport staff behavior at Delhi airport with my sister. We are going to take serious action against this and go to court with it, let the law handle it, so that this does not happen to any girl again (sic)," the fuming actress tweeted.
"Is this how a girl alone at an airport gets treated by the staff of the airline she is flying. She is unwell and has a horrible backache, can't believe this happened to her right now. My heart is beating so fast with anger that a girl at an airport gets treated this way by airport staff! He is at the kingfisher counter (sic)," she said.
Throwing more light on the incident, Ayesha, who was paired opposite Salman Khan in Bollywood flick 'Wanted', said a staffer of the Kingfisher Airlines tore boarding pass of her younger sibling at the airport.
"Kingfisher staff Vinay Podwal just threatened and yelled at my sister saying he can throw anyone out and TORE her boarding pass! This disgustingly behaved Kingfisher staff called Vinay podwal just tore my sister's boarding pass and misbehaved with her. How can this happen? How dare this Vinay Podwal misbehave with a passenger and tear her boarding pass? It could be any one of u think about it (sic)," she said on the microblogging site.
Ayesha's tweet however is silent on the cause behind the incident.
Responding to Ayesha's tweet, Sidhartha Mallya, son of Chairman of Kingfisher Airlines Vijay Mallya raised doubts over the actor's claim.
"Been getting tweets about Ayesha Takia & KFA. Not too sure who she is, an actor of some sorts?? But it seems something has upset her," Sidhartha Mallya tweeted.
"Don't know why Ayesha Takia is tweeting so much when she wasn't even present. There are always two sides to a story. Pipe down love," he said.
Fuming Ayesha Takia attacked Siddharth Mallya on Twitter. "Well any indian citizen can stand up for their rites if treated badly,and I don't have to be anyone u know sidharth mallya!!!!!!!!!!!!" (sic) She tweeted.
"My sis is a normal indian girl traveling economy so ofcourse u won't giv a shit,I know the whole story coz it happend 2 my sister therefore," (sic) Ayesha posted on her account.
"u wernt there either so don't b condescending and defend ur freakin staff,first find out wot happend!u clearly r unaware of ALOT sidharth m!" (sic) Ayesha went on to add.
"I will rant siddharth mallaya,,wot will u DO!!!!!this Is ur way of dealing with a hospitality buiseness!!!wow!!learn manners n respect!!!" (sic) Ayesha further tweeted.
Seeing a barrage of tweets from Ayesha, Siddharth Mallya decided to close this ugly chapter, "Wow, lots of tweets this am! Didn't anyone sleep?!..am not gonna comment on this topic anymore peeps..got bored. sorry to disappoint haha!!" (sic)
