Dangal actress Zaira Wasim molested on Delhi-Mumbai flight. Posts videos online

National award winning actress Zaira Wasim shared her horrifying experience of sexual misconduct by a fellow passenger on a Delhi-Mumbai flight.

The 17 year old actress, famed for her roles in movies like 'Dangal' and 'Secret Superstar', was on-board a Vistara flight when a "middle-aged man" - as she claims, started inappropriately touching and rubbing his feet against her.

The actress shared two separate videos on her Instagram detailing her experience. The first one, recorded inside the plane, showed her trying to capture the incident on cam while the second one featured her narrating the incident after de-boarding the flight.

"It was all chill till I felt somebody brushing against my back while I was half asleep... Guess he couldn't sit like a civilized human being and placed his feet on my arm rest while he's fully PHELOAOED (spread) his body on his seat," Zaira recalled in her Instagram story.

Zaira who was visibly shaken and upset after the entire incident was seen wiping off her tears in the video recorded soon after her flight landed at the Mumbai airport.

"This is not done! this is not the way anybody should be made to feel! This is terrible," she said. "Who is going to help us Girls? If we don't help ourselves, nobody will come ahead"

Vistara has responded to Zaira's pleas and an investigation is said to be underway.

"We have zero tolerance for such behavior," the airline stated on their Twitter handle.
