Indian actor Hrithik Roshan left the Ataturk airport just hours before the deadly bombing took place. The actor took to Twitter to tell the world how by mere chance, he managed to escape the deadly attack. He also thanked the airport’s helpful staff for facilitating him and showed his solidarity with the people of Turkey in these hard times.

According to details provided, Hrithik Roshan was on his way back to India from Spain and Turkey happened to be his transit spot. The 42-year-old actor was with his two sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan who had gone with their father to vacation in Spain and Africa after attending the IIFA Awards in Madrid last weekend.

The father and sons were travelling in Business Class but they somehow missed their flight and were stuck at the airport. The next available business class flight was due to fly out the next day, but Roshan decided to take the next available seats in the economy class. Due to this decision, they were able to fly back to India just hours before the blasts took place.

In the tweets, Hroshan mentioned how helpful the staff at Ataturk Airport was in helping him and his sons to get the next available flight. He also said that the attack on innocent people for the sake of religion was a sad affair and that we all should stand united against terrorism.

According to the initial reports, the attack on Ataturk Airport which killed 36 people seems to have been carried out by Daesh (Islamic State) militants.
