Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh shared a video on his Twitter handle pointing out lapses at the Hyderabad airport.
He got stuck after the power went off at the airport loungue.
Sharing a video, Rithesh wrote, .“So we were at the Hyderabad Airport Lounge – suddenly the power goes off- the way in & out is an elevator that shuts down. The only exit door is locked in a chain (Incase of FIRE it’s a tragedy waiting to happen).” (sic) tweeted Riteish.
Explaining the situation further, the Bollywood actor wrote, "Security personnel refuses to give permission to open the door at the cost of passengers missing their flight. Wake up Hyderabad airport Authority - public exits can''t be locked in case of emergencies."
The Hyderabad airport authorities quickly responded to Riteish's tweet and wrote, "We regret the inconvenience caused. It was a minor technical snag which was resolved immediately. Please be rest assured that our Airport Terminals are safety compliant. In an event of any emergency, the glass doors can be broken. Passenger safety is of utmost importance to us."
