Gunmen shot at the car of a Turkish pop star in the heart of Istanbul on Saturday but he escaped the attack unhurt, Turkish media said.

Berkay Sahin, 34, was driving away from a nightclub after a performance in the city's central Besiktas district early Saturday when the two assailants on a motorbike fired at his car.

Police were still looking for the pair who fled the scene, the private Dogan news agency reported.

A picture on Dogan showed the impact made by a bullet on the window of the singer's Aston Martin.

The performer told reporters that he didn't know who was behind the attack as he had "no enemies."

Berkay is especially popular among Turkish teens with his good looks and romantic songs and some of his video clips on YouTube have had more than 25 million views.

The singer made headlines in May when rumours circulated that he was an affair with the wife of a top footballer but he denied the claims.
