DMK MP and former Union Minister Dayanidhi Maran was taken by surprise as he realized his fellow parliamentarian and BJP MP Rajiv Pratap Rudy was the pilot of his New Delhi to Chennai IndiGo flight.

Calling it a “Flight to Remember” Maran took to Twitter and wrote a series of tweets, narrating the experience on his flight back to Chennai after attending a meeting of Parliament’s Estimates Committee in Delhi.

He wrote, “A Flight to remember. July 13, 2021, I boarded the Indigo flight 6E864 from Delhi to Chennai after attending a meeting of the parliamentary Estimates Committee. I happened to sit in the first row, as the crew declared that the boarding had completed. “So you are traveling in this flight as well!’ said a person dressed in the Captain’s uniform. I could not recognize him with his mask on, although his voice sounded familiar. I nodded my head, still wondering who it could be.”

He further added, “He looked at me and his eyes gave away the smile behind the mask. ‘So you don’t recognize me!’ he exclaimed. I realized then that it was none other than my colleague, senior member of parliament, and former Union Minister – my very good friend Thiru Rajiv Pratap Rudy”

Maran mentioned that two hours ago, Rudy was also present in the meeting of the Estimates Committee and he could not believe his “transformation”.

He said, “Just 2 hours ago, he and I were part of intense discussions at the Estimates Committee and now I couldn’t believe my eyes, seeing his transformation from a politician to a pilot,”

“I was pleasantly surprised and told Rudyji that I couldn’t believe that he was going to be the captain flying us from Delhi to Chennai. He laughed and said ‘Yes, I noticed that you didn’t recognize me, I fly frequently’.”
