Popular Bollywood singer Udit Narayan, who is known for his calm demeanor, was in for a shock when he found out about his son Aditya Narayan's airport controversy. Aditya Narayan has been making the headlines after he allegedly misbehaved with IndiGo airlines ground staff while travelling from Raipur to Mumbai on Sunday when asked to pay excess baggage charges. Udit was apparently mortified after this incident.
The singer stated, "I was unaware of the developments until someone told me about it. I couldn't believe it. Aditya is not like that at all. Though he's our only child, my wife Deepa and I have brought him up with the correct values. So, I was sceptical about the truth of the incident until someone showed me the video. What can I say? We've all lost our cool at the airport at some point or another. Aditya was unfortunate enough to have been caught on video."
Not that Udit is justifying his son's behaviour. "Not at all! If Aditya has misbehaved it is wrong. As soon as I get back to Mumbai, I'll have him issue a public apology. Right now, he's very scared and nervous. Making it worse is the attack from all corners as though he has committed a major crime. I agree it's wrong to misbehave in public. But in my humble opinion, it's equally wrong to attack someone who is caught on the wrong foot. Aditya is a self-made child. He never took my help in anything he has achieved. Whatever he has achieved is on his own merit. We are proud of him."
But apparently, there are many in the industry who think that Aditya has become too big for his boots. "Everyone knows about his bragging, womanizing, clubbing and hedonistic lifestyle. Everyone except his father, maybe," says a leading singer. (Also read: VIDEO: Aditya Narayan misbehaves with IndiGo airline staff)
