Bollywood Stars Reacted With Sadness and Anguish on Terrorist Attack on Mumbai

The heinous act of terrorism that is termed biggest ever terrorist act on India in Mumbai which took nearly life of 200 people has also disturbed bollywood stars too. Below are some of the comments as made by bollywood stars as appeared on leading Indian Daily, The Hindu:

Hema Malini said, “I think the Mumbai police rose to the occasion. It is very sad that we lost some brave officers. Hats off to the army, for rescuing people, it’s really sad that Mumbai has become so unsafe. I wait with my heart in my mouth until Esha and Ahana are home. We desperately need more security.”

Raveena Tandon said, “We were in a restaurant in south Mumbai having dinner with friends when we started getting calls to leave immediately. We still waited. But then a policeman called and advised us to go home. We headed home in groups and stayed on the phone till each of us reached safely. It’s time for the corrupt politicians to wake up. Stop thinking of your vote banks and think of what’s happening to the country.”

Bipasha Basu said, “It’s shocking and scary. We’re going through a very disturbing and inhuman phase. On Wednesday night, I travelled on the highway two minutes after the Vile Parle blast. There was mayhem on the roads. John’s (John Abraham) aunt, who works at the Taj (Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotels), reached home at 7 a.m. Thursday. I wonder where and when it will end.”

Shabana Azmi Said,“I was on the phone with a friend in London when she asked me to switch on the TV. It’s a diabolic war waged on our city and country. This isn’t the time to place blame. We need to maintain peace and communal harmony and cooperate with the police. Our condolences to police officers who sacrificed their lives. Terrorism should be struck down with an iron hand.”

Shilpa Shetty Said, “I had an early morning shoot Thursday so I went to sleep early. I had no clue about what happened in my city until someone called from London to ask if I was alright. That’s when I switched on the TV and quickly made calls to friends who live in town. It makes me sad and angry that Mumbai residents are soft targets for such attacks. It’s an unsettling feeling, especially since we seem not equipped to deal with it. This is an open war against humanity.”

Arshad Warsi: I was on my way back from Panchgani Wednesday night. The explosion at Vile Parle happened 15-20 minutes after I passed by that area. I trust the police and army. They’ll sort it out. Nothing can stop Mumbai residents from getting back to normal. But we need to exercise more caution.

Iqbal Khan: “Mujahideen is such a sure and strong word. I’m sure they don’t even know the meaning.”
