The footage shows a male passenger in a yellow hoodie running up the aisle and striking the pilot while he was making a delay announcement. Sood, who himself experienced a 3-hour flight delay at the airport earlier that day, took to social media to express his shock and dismay at the incident. Sharing a screenshot from the video, he wrote: "Soon self defence training programs will become mandatory for airline staff, if people continue to behave in such unruly ways!!"

The Dabangg 2 actor also spoke about the need for passengers to be patient and understanding towards airline staff during challenging situations. He shared, "The weather Gods have their own moods, beyond human control!! I have been patiently waiting for the last 3 hours at the airport. I know it's difficult but request everyone to be polite with the airline's crew. They are doing their best! Oftentimes I see visuals of people behaving very rudely with them. We need to understand that some situations are beyond anyone's control and everyone deserves to be respected."
