A missed flight and unavailability of business class tickets are two things that saved the lives of Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan and his sons Hrehaan and Hredhaan, who were stuck at Istanbul airport hours before the terror attacks that killed 36 people and injured 147 on Wednesday morning.
In a series of tweets, Hrithik said that ‘kindest staff at Istanbul airport’ helped Hrithik and his sons to fly out in safety.
He further said that he was shocked to know that innocent people were killed at the Istanbul airport for religion, while stressing on the fact that ‘we all must stand united against terrorism’.
