In a video uploaded online on Sunday, singer Udit Narayan’s son Aditya Narayan is seen yelling at airport officials and threatening one person after an altercation.
In the video, Aditya is seen protesting an airline official’s allegations that the singer was using abusive language in public. Aditya responds by saying that he is free to say whatever he wants, and that he was having a private conversation with his friends. It is also hinted that the group was filming a video of some sort.
Aditya goes on to say that the airline can bar him from entering the flight, but he will reach Mumbai at some point, and he will ensure that the particular airline official is dealt with. “My name is not Aditya Narayan if I don’t get your underwear removed,” he yells, and walks off in the minute-long video.
“You cannot use these words here,” the official can be heard saying.
The incident took place at Raipur airport. Aditya was in the city for an event. Aditya is currently hosting his sixth season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs on Zee TV.
Here is the airline’s statement:
Today on 6E-258 (Raipur-Mumbai), Mr Aditya Narayan, travelling with a group of 5 people, was carrying excess baggage of 40 kgs. The amount to be paid for the carriage of excess baggage came to 13000 INR. He refused to pay this amount to the female check in staff member and said that he will not pay more than 10000 INR for the excess baggage and also used unparliamentary language with the female staff member.
While making a video, he pointed a finger at the Duty Manager and again used profanity. When politely asked to be civil and not use such language as there were other passengers and female staff members present, he started shouting even louder and used abusive words which we are refraining from mentioning here.
He was informed that if he continues to misbehave he will not be allowed to travel.
Later, passenger Mr Narayan apologised to the ground staff and thereafter was given the boarding cards.
We at IndiGo can at no point compromise the dignity of our staff members or passengers. (sic)
