The procedure irked her so much that she requested Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to look into the matter and ​even ​asked him for a better process for prosthetic users. After she raised the concern on social media, CISF official Twitter handle issued an apology to the actor, saying, “We assure Ms.Sudhaa Chandran that all our personnel will be sensitised again on the protocols so that no inconvenience is caused to travelling passengers.”

Now, the Naagin actor has revealed the officers have informed her that they are looking into this matter with utmost urgency. Chandran told ETimes, “I got a call from CISF officers saying that they are looking into this matter with utmost urgency. I am so happy that they are acting on it in less than 24 hours of me posting the video. Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Minister of Civil Aviation, sent me a message with an apology and said that he will personally look into the matter so none of us will have an issue, going forward. I am extremely happy that our ministers are connecting with the common man. Also, I want to thank Mr Scindia, Mr Gopal Shetty, who is an MP, and all the CISF officials for taking immediate action about my concern.


Sudhaa also mentioned, “That day, CISF officers particularly called me and admitted that there is no such rule and there is nothing like insistence of opening of a prosthetics as it is only done under exceptional circumstances and we don’t fall under that category.
