A couple of Bollywood stars were in New Delhi when the capital was rocked by the latest terror attack.
Abhishek Bachchan was just a few kilometers away from the blast site in Connaught Place, while Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor canceled their plans to venture out after the serial blasts in Delhi on Saturday.
Also in town was Imtiaz Ali – who’s a Delhi boy – to finalize the shooting locations for his next film which stars Saif and Deepika Padukone . Kareena was in Delhi to inaugurate a spa before heading off to Ladakh to shoot Raju Hirani’s movie 3 Idiots .
Abhishek had arrived in Delhi for a number of assignments which included the promotion of Drona , shooting of Dilli 6 and a brand event. On Saturday evening, Abhishek was reportedly heading to one of the venues via Connaught Place when the bomb placed at Barakhamba Road went off. Thankfully, Abhishek was minutes away from the spot.
Needless to say, the event to which Abhishek was headed got cancelled and upon his return the actor got to see the devastation caused by the bomb.
According to Abhishek’s friend Shrishti Behl, Abhishek was deeply disturbed by the blasts. So much so that he cancelled the promotional event of ‘Drona’ on Sunday as he did not deem it fit to promote his film when the city was reeling from terror attacks.
On the other hand, Saif and Kareena stayed put in their hotel, Maurya Sheraton. Saif and Imtiaz Ali had planned to shoot their film in Delhi from September 16. When last heard, their plan had not changed. In fact, Deepika Padukone is expected to join the team in Delhi soon.
The show, after all, must go on.
