Here's Why The Bangkok Trip Had To Be Cut Short
Revealing the reason, Sabbir continued, "There was forecast of a tsunami, so they decided to return. But Mushtaq and I stayed back as there were limited flight tickets. We stayed in Bangkok for a month and Sushant gave us his ATM card for our expenses. Later, Samuel Haokip transferred us money as per our need from Mumbai."
Later, when Sushant and Sara reached Mumbai along with their friends, Samuel Haokip picked them up from the airport.
