Madurai/IBNS: Actor Siddharth Tuesday alleged that his parents were "harassed" by airport security personnel in Tamil Nadu's Madurai.

In an Instagram story, the actor alleged the airport security personnel made his parents remove coins from their bags, repeatedly spoke to them in Hindi and refused to talk in English even after being requested to do so.

He claimed that when his parents protested, the security personnel said, "In India, this is how it is."

"Harassed for 20 mins @ Madurai airport by CRPF. They made my senior parents remove coins from their bags! And repeatedly talked to us in Hindi after being told to speak in English," Siddharth's Instagram story read.

The security at Madurai airport is handled by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

However, the actor's allegations as per his Instagram post were against the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
