In addition, Heathrow Airport addressed Satish Shah’s statement of regret on the encounter.
The actor Satish Shah’s response to a racist remark he was made to at Heathrow Airport in the UK has gone viral on social media. The “Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai” actor said on Twitter that he overheard Heathrow Airport personnel asking how they (probably Mr. Shah and his family) can afford a first-class aircraft ticket as he was at the airport, getting ready to board his trip. Mr. Shah claimed that he did it in a collected manner.
“I overheard the Heathrow attendant wonderingly asking his comrade “how can they afford 1st class?” and I answered with a proud smile “because we are Indians.” Mr. Shah disclosed.
The tweet from Mr. Shah received more than 11,000 likes and a number of comments. An apology for the encounter was also sent in a Twitter response from Heathrow Airport. “We’re sorry to hear about this incident, good morning. Please DM us.” Posted in the comments was the airport.
Many online users thanked Mr. Shah for rejecting the racial insult. Some people even pleaded with the UK government to take the required action.
“Ms. Sarabhai had to be there for us. She would have responded brutally. Like usual Mr. Sarabhai, this was still acceptable. Having missed those shows, “one user wrote. Another person added, “Next time, please add one more line saying whatever they can afford today is also due to Indian money that their forefathers looted.”
The most well-known part for Satish Shah, who has been in a number of Bollywood films, is in the hit TV soap opera comedy “Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai.” Additionally, he had a judge appearance on the TV programme Comedy Circus.
In addition to others, Mr. Shah has appeared in films including “Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!” “Hum Saath Saath Hain,” “Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai,” “Main Hoon Na,” and “Khichdi: The Movie.” He last appeared in the 2014 film “Humshakals.”
