CELEB PRAYERS POUR IN FOR PARIS
The Paris terror attack left the whole world, including national and international celebrities, shocked
The world came to a standstill after terrorists opened fire and threw bombs killing over 120 people in Paris, France on Friday night. Following the tragic news, the premier of Steven Spielberg’s upcoming film Bridge Of Spies, was cancelled. Irish rock band U2 also cancelled their scheduled performance in Paris. “We watched in disbelief and shock at the unfolding events in Paris and our hearts go out to all the victims and their families across the city,” the band said in a statement. Celebrities from around the world, including singers, musicians and actors took to social media to stand in solidarity with the French. Bollywood, too, woke up shocked and saddened by the incident. “Woke up to the terrible news of the #ParisAttacks! Haven’t we evolved at all? My thoughts, love & prayers with those affected (sic),” actor Akshay Kumar tweeted. “Terrible, terrible news about Paris. My heart sinks at the incomprehensible violence. When will this end?” wrote actor Shabana Azmi. International stars, too, asked everyone to Pray for Paris — a hashtag that was trending on social media through the day.
