The three of them, missed the connecting flight and were waiting at the Istanbul airport a little before the suicide bomber attack
On getting in touch, Hrithik shared with the media – “We missed our connecting flight in Instanbul. We were stuck at the Istanbul Ataturk airport. We were supposed to wait for 18 hours for the next flight out. But we preferred to fly economy class and took an earlier flight out of Istanbul.”
