Dangal Actress Zaira Wasim Alleges Molestation On A Delhi-Mumbai Flight

The Dangal and Secret Superstar actor Zaira Wasim had to face a rather unfortunate incident after she boarded a flight recently.

Narrating the incident, the actress posted a video on Instagram and broke down several times.

Zaira has alleged that she was molested by a co-passenger while she was travelling from Delhi to Mumbai.

". right behind me one middle aged man made my 2-hour journey miserable", she wrote in her Insta story before she dived into details of what ensued. Blamed the turbulence for it. In her post, she said, "So, I just landed... this is not how a girl should be made to feel because this is awful". The actress also said that this incident was continued for 10 minutes.

When she woke up, she found his foot "rubbing [against her] back and neck", Zaira said.

"Guess he couldn't sit like a civilised human being". I tried to record it on phone to understand it better because the cabin lights were dimmed, I failed to get it. She was visibly upset and shaken by the incident.

"So, I just landed and you know the whole irony of this is that the guy. this is not done at all. This is not how people should be made to feel". "If we don't help ourselves, nobody will come ahead". "This is the worst thing", she said in an Instagram live video.

Vistara issued a statement saying it was carrying out a detailed investigation and would support the actress in every way required. This is how they will take care of girls?

Reportedly, she was not the only one onboard the flight to have faced the same ordeal. "Further details will come from the investigation which is now ongoing in full force", the airline added, before apologising to Zaira for what she had experienced.

Meanwhile, sources within the airline said the Dangal actor began yelling at the man in question only once the Vistara flight started descending and was on the final landing path. In the live video, she also expressed her displeasure with crew members of the flight.
