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.
