Journalist Mahesh Chitnis also shared another video of Terminal 2 at Bangalore airport.
The new terminal is built based on a theme that showcases the ethos of Bengaluru as the garden city of India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the second terminal on November 11, reports Hindustan Times.
