Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his children Hrehaan and Hridaan were reportedly at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport hours before a terrorist attack took place. Thirty six people were killed and 147 injured, reported CNN.

Soon after the attack, Hrithik tweeted that they had been in the airport just before the attack and were scheduled to wait there for a day because they had missed their connecting flight back to India. However, the actor and his children were luckily able to find seats to fly out some hours before the attack took place.

According to reports, Hrithik had been on vacation in Africa with his sons, and was returning to India via Turkey. Earlier, on June 27, the actor had tweeted a photo of himself and his children en route to their African vacation, and wrote, “AFRICA!!! Flying 18 hours straight since stage. Last leg to #kilimanjaro #thefunbegins #travellersNOTtourists.”
