The bombing at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport last night sent a tremor of fear down everyone’s spine including Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan.
The actor was en route to India via Istanbul, after vacationing in Spain and Madrid with his two sons, and narrowly missed the triple bombing by a mere few hours after taking the earliest flight out.
As soon as news of the bombings broke, he tweeted his narrow escape.
