Sid Mallya acted childish: Ayesha Takia
Actor Ayesha Takia may have accepted Kingfisher group owner Vijay Mallya’s apology for his Airline staffer’s alleged misbehaviour with her sister Natasha, but she’s in no mood to forgive his son Sidhartha yet. Mallya Jr got into a tweet fight with Takia when she made the allegation against Kingfisher Airline on Twitter earlier this week.
“What Mr (Vijay) Mallya did was more mature, it was the right reaction. And honestly, I don’t care about Sidhartha. I reacted because his comments were in bad taste and he was getting personal while I was just addressing an issue like anyone else would have. I think it was too childish of him to say all that,” says Takia. During their war of words, Sid had tweeted, “Not sure who is Ayesha Takia ... an actor of some sorts? (sic)”
Although Takia says she will not drag the Mallyas to court, she wants action to be taken against Kingfisher staff member Vinay Podwal, who allegedly tore Natasha’s boarding pass at Delhi Airport on Monday. “We have sent complaint letters to authorities in Kingfisher as we want strict action against him,” she says, adding, “No staff member can take the liberty to misbehave and threaten a passenger the way Podwal threatened my sister, instead of helping her.”
I had a bad experience too: Anurag kashyap
After Takia, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has tweeted about a bad experience with Kingfisher Airlines while Sidhartha Mallya was in the same flight as his: “I had a terrible Kingfisher experience too. Flew to London last year and Sid Mallya was flying too & the entire staff was just catering to him. When the boss was there they forgot that others existed too,” he posted.
