Singer Aditya Narayan, son of famous singer Udit Narayan, was caught on camera misbehaving with the airport staff of airline carrier IndiGo.
The young singer is seen protesting and using abusive language. He goes on to shout at the man claiming that he can say whatever he wants and there should be no restriction on that. He claimed to have been shooting a video with his friend when the incident happened.
The 30-year-old was in Raipur for performing at Dussehra Festival. While returning back, the singer and an official had a heated argument at the airport.
People tried to calm Aditya down but his anger did not diminish and he threatened the Indigo employee.
During the argument, Aditya can be seeing saying, “If they (airlines) off-load me, I am gonna see you in Mumbai.”
It is reported that the acclaimed singer could get the permission to board his flight only after seeking forgiveness from the employee.
Narayan – who is also a TV reality show host – was stopped for exceeding the cabin luggage limit.
Soon after the video went viral, there was a series of statements tweeted out from Indigo airlines: “Today on 6E-258 (Raipur-Mumbai), Aditya Narayan, travelling with a group of 5 people, was carrying excess baggage of 40 kg; Amount to be paid for carriage of excess baggage came to 13000 INR. He refused to pay this amount to the female check in staff member; He said he will not pay more than 10000 INR for the excess baggage & 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 & not use such language, he started shouting even louder and used abusive words; Informed that if he continues to misbehave he won’t be allowed to travel. He apologised to ground staff & was given boarding cards”.
Reacting to the incident, veteran singer Usha Uthup told, “I am very shocked and sad that people from our fraternity are using such language. He should have been careful with his words. When you know you have a famous father, but as a human being too, you should avoid such bad language.”
Film Maker and Social Activist Ashoke Pandit tweeted ‘I condemn #AdityaNarayan’S behaviour with staff of @IndiGo6E at Raipur. With success comes humility & not arrogance.He should apologise.’
