Mumbai/Raipur: Budget passenger carrier IndiGo on Monday said actor-singer Aditya Narayan misbehaved with its staff at Raipur airport but later apologized.
The incident occurred around Monday noon, when Narayan travelling on Raipur-Mumbai IndiGo flight 6E-258 used "unparliamentary language" with a female staff member of the airline.
IndiGo came out with its version after a video emerged showing Narayan engaged in an argument with its staff members at Raipur airport.
The verbal altercation was triggered after Narayan was asked to pay for carrying excess baggage on-board.
The actor-singer was travelling with a group and was allegedly carrying excess baggage of 40 kg -- well above the free prescribed limit of 15 kg.
According to the airline, Narayan was asked to pay Rs 13,000 for the excess baggage, which he refused and thereafter used "unparliamentary language" with a female staff member of the airline.
"He refused to pay... and also used unparliamentary language with a female staff member," Ajay Jasra, Director Corporate Communications, IndiGo Airlines, told IANS in New Delhi.
"Narayan was informed that if he continues to misbehave then he will not be allowed to travel. Later, passenger Narayan apologised to the ground staff and thereafter was given his boarding card."
