MUMBAI -- Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan was stuck at the Istanbul's Ataturk airport, few hours before the terrorist attack that has killed at least 36 people.

The 42-year-old Bang Bang (2014) star, who was vacationing in Africa with sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan, was on his way back to India when he missed his connecting flight at the Istanbul's airport.

"Missed connecting flight at Istanbul and were stuck at airport next flight was next day, but took economy and flew out earlier. #Prayers4istanbul," Hrithik tweeted.

The actor thanked the airport staff for the assistance and also asked his fans to come together in the fight against terrorism.

"Was helped by the kindest staff at Istanbul airport hours ago. Shocking news. Innocents killed for religion. We must stand united against terrorism," he added.

Three suspected Islamic State group suicide bombers targeted the international terminal of Istanbul's Ataturk airport, killing at least 36 people and wounding many others.
