Till the latest update came in, all actors and crew members are safe inside the hotel.
 
Director Birsa Dasgupta wrote on Twitter that they were safe and actor Yash Dasgupta tweeted, "Thank you Istanbul for making us feel like home, nothing to worry about.. Safe & Secured."
 
The shooting unit is there in Istanbul since July 10 and actor-cum-minister Bratya Basu joined them on Friday, few hours prior to the coup attempt.
