While Sundararajan ignored the question and kept facing the camera unperturbed, BJP members near her pushed him back and later pulled him away.
Soundararajan had earlier complained to Tuticorin airport authorities about a young woman, Sofia, who shouted anti-BJP slogans inside an aircraft.
The police took Sofia into custody but got bail the next day.
