Indian police have filed a sexual assault case against an airline passenger after Bollywood actor Zaira Wasim said she was molested in a flight.

The 17-year-old Zaira Wasim said the male passenger had molested her during a late New Delhi-Mumbai flight.

She documented the incident on Instagram and tried to film the man but said it was too dark to see his face.

Wasim starred in Dangal, Bollywood's highest earned-film to date.

Indian media reports said that the man had been identified with help from the airline, Air Vistara.

She was awarded the National Child Award for Exceptional Achievement earlier this year by India's President Ram Nath Kovind.

Wasim had accused the airline of not doing anything to help her when she raised the issue but did not file an official complaint against them.

Air Vistara said on Twitter that staff had not become aware of the incident until the plane was on its descent to Mumbai but it apologized for what Wasim had experienced.
