Vistara responds to Aditi Rao Hydari's 'airport circus' post, says actor faced 'delay of 12 minutes'

Mumbai/IBNS: Actor Aditi Rao Hydari shared her ordeal at Mumbai airport after she landed early morning and found that there was "no ladder nor an airbridge". 

Sharing the incident on her Instagram account on Saturday, the Heeramandi actress said she was stranded on the tarmac.

In response, the airline issued a statement clarifying that the delay was "12 minutes".

In her Instagram stories, Aditi shared a picture of the airport from her flight window, calling it an 'airport circus'.

"New lows everyday! No ladder nor an airbridge. While we watch the 12:10 a.m. airport circus. Stranded @vistara #mumbaiairportterminal2," she captioned the post.

Hours later, Vistara issued a statement clarifying: "We confirm that the deboarding of Vistara flight UK 876 operating from Hyderabad to Mumbai faced a delay of 12 minutes due to an obstruction in aligning the step ladder with our aircraft."

"The relevant authorities were immediately informed and corrective measures were taken. We regret the inconvenience caused to our customers due to the same," the airline said.

Aditi Rao Hydari is a star of films like Ajeeb Daastan, Delhi 6, Bajirao Mastani, to name a few. She starred in the hit series Jubilee last year and will be soon seen in Sanjay Leela Bansali's TV series 'Heeramandi'.
