MUMBAI: Actress Ayesha Takia is upset after a ground staff member of Kingfisher Airlines misbehaved with her younger sister Nisha at the airport.

The worst airline, kingfisher!!! shockingly baddddddddddd airport staff behaviour at the Delhi airport with my sister. This disgustingly behaved kingfisher staff called Vinay Podwal just tore my sister’s boarding pass n misbehaved with her!!!!," an angry Ayesha wrote on her Twitter page.

"Can’t believe thisssss!!! I’m in mumbai n I wish I was there rite now 2! soooo angry!! How can this happen!!! how dare this vinay podwal misbehave with a passenger and tear her boarding pass. 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.

"Vinay Podwal at Delhi airport, kingfisher staff just threatened and yelled at my sister saying he can throw anyone out n TORE her boarding pass!" she posted.

The actress said that the family is planning to take legal action against the airline staff.

She posted: "We are going to take serious action against this and go to court with it, let the law handle it, so that this doesn’t happen to any girl again!"

However, the Twitter rant against Kingfisher didn’t go down well with its heir Sidhartha Mallya.

"Been getting retweets about Ayesha Takia and KFA. not too sure who she is, an actor of some sorts?? But it seems something has upset her!!" he posted.

"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," he added.

To which Ayesha replied: "Well any Indian citizen can stand up for their rites if treated badly, and I don’t have to be anyone you know sidharth mallya!!!! You weren’t there either so don’t be condescending and defend your freaking staff, first find out what happend! You clearly are unaware of ALOT Sidhartha Mallya!!"

"My sister is a normal Indian girl travelling economy so ofcourse you won’t give a shit, I know the whole story because it happened to my sister. therefore I will rant siddharth mallaya, what will you DO!!!! This is your way of dealing with a hospitality business!!! wow!! learn manners and respect!!!

Ayesha’s husband and restaurateur Farhan Azmi also tweeted: "Jr. Mallya should not have got personal in the first place … @Ayeshatakia was talking about #kingfisher she never mentioned the owners at all."
