The 'Mulk' actor also said he had a bitter experience with the airline in the past and asks his fans to boycott the airline.

“Racist. Don’t fly British Airways. We cannot be kicked around. Sad to hear about the Berlin child incident. I stopped flying British Airways after the cabin crew were rude and had attitude not once but twice even after being a first class passenger. Fly Jet Airways or Emirates. There is dignity,” Rishi tweeted on Thursday.

The incident of humiliation of the Indian family took place on July 23, when the family was travelling from London to Berlin on a British Airways flight.

Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu has directed the aviation regulator to thoroughly study the matter that took place at British Airways and place report.
