Talking about the nightmarish experience that her sister Natasha had to undergo with Kingfisher airlines, Ayesha Takia tweeted, “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 went on to say, “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)."
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 the 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.
Responding to Ayesha Takia's tweet, Sidhartha Mallya, son of Chairman of Kingfisher Airlines Vijay Mallya raised doubts over the actress' claim. The Mallya scion wrote on the microblogging site twitter, “Been getting retweets about Ayesha Takia & KFA. not too sure who she is, an actor of some sorts?? But it seems something has upset her!!." He went on to add, “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."
Ayesha, on her part replied, “I will rant siddharth mallaya,,wot will u DO!!!!!this Is ur way of dealing with a hospitality buiseness!!!wow!!learn manners n respect!!!"
While Ayesha Takia got a lot of support from people on twitter, Siddharth Mallya has been termed as arrogant and pompous by people on the microblogging site.
