Singer Aditya Narayan, son of acclaimed singer Udit Narayan, has landed himself in trouble. The singer was caught on camera misbehaving with the airline IndiGo ground staff while travelling from Raipur to Mumbai on Sunday.
The fight apparently broke out when Aditya Narayan was asked to pay excess baggage charges. In the video that has gone viral, an infuriated Aditya is seen threatening the ground staff. Reportedly, Aditya was asked to pay Rs 13, 000 for the excess baggage charges. The singer then is said to have refused to pay anything above Rs 10, 000.
The video then shows that Aditya Narayan saying that whenever he reaches Mumbai, he will make ensure that the particular airline official is dealt with. “My name is not Aditya Narayan if I don’t get your underwear removed,” he yelled in the video before walking away. “You cannot use these words here,” the airline official is heard in the video.
The IndiGo airline later issued a statement about the whole fiasco. 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.”
Aditya Narayan is currently hosting his sixth season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs on Zee TV.
