The actress apparently refused to travel economy class to Delhi to promote her next
It's but obvious for us to assume that actors would only fly first or business class to befit their 'star' status. However, if and when required, we have heard of some stars flying economy.
Ayesha Takia, apparently, is not one of those who'll compromise on her career perks.
She refused to board a flight to Delhi when she learnt she was being 'downgraded', forcing producers of her forthcoming film Mod to cancel the promotional event to be held in the capital.
A source explains, "Unfortunately, the sponsor for the event backed out. But as the publicity was done, the producers decided to go ahead. They made the bookings themselves for the cast and crew.
Given the time of the event, they could only manage to get seats in the economy class of a low fare airline."
Director Nagesh Kukunoor and co-star Rannvijay Singh were to join Ayesha on the flight. However, when the actress learnt about the bookings, she balked at the thought of flying economy.
"She just didn't want to fly that way and decided to opt out. After some time, the producers decided to cancel the event, " adds the source.
Change in schedule
Strangely, Rannvijay didn't get the message about the cancellation on time, and so he headed to the airport early morning to board his flight.
"He had to make calls when he didn't sight anyone at the airport. That's when he learnt the event was cancelled, " says our source, adding that the VJ-turned-actor decided to go to the capital any way.
"More so because a show of the music channel he's associated with was happening in Delhi. So he went for it and returned in the evening, " the source says.
