Aamir Khan's Dangal co-star Zaira Wasim faced harassment on Air Vistara's flight Saturday night and made sure to document it.
On her Instagram story, the actor shared an image of a foot stretched out on her arm rest. She described that while she was sleeping on the two-hour flight from Delhi to Mumbai, she woke up to a foot rubbing against her back and neck.
"... 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.
"It was all chill till I felt somebody brushing against my back while I was half asleep. I ignored it the first time. Blamed the turbulence for it. Until I woke up to this unpleasant sight of his beautiful foot rubbing my back and neck," she added.
"It continued for another 5-10 minutes and then I was sure of it. He kept nudging my shoulder and continued to move his foot up and down my back and neck," described Zaira.
"Guess he couldn't sit like a civilised human being."
Though Zaira couldn't record the harassment due to dim lights on the place, she recorded a video of herself as soon as she landed in Mumbai. She was visibly upset and shaken by the incident.
"I just landed and you know the whole irony of this is [that] this is not done at all. This is not how people should be made to feel," said the actor as she burst into tears.
"This is terrible. No one, no one will help us if we don't decide to help ourselves. This is the worst thing."
Air Vastara was quick to respond, and shared on Twitter that they "are carrying out detailed investigation and will support Zaira in every way required. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour."
Update: The airline apologised to the actor and explained that the crew was not aware of the on-goings as the incident took place "during final descent when they were seated for landing."
Reportedly, she was not the only one onboard the flight to have faced the same ordeal.
