Riteish Deshmukh, Genelia D'Souza escape terror attack in Bangkok

Bollywood’s attractive couple Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza had a miraculous escape in a lethal bomb blast that exploded in Bangkok injuring 120 and killing 20.

Gorgeous Genelia Deshmukh along with her debonair husband Riteish Deshmukh, were in Bangkok for shooting an advertisement. Incidentally the bomb blast occurred close to the location where the duo was shooting but luckily they were safe.

Heaving a sigh of relief Genelia Deshmukh took to tweeter and informing her fans she tweeted that they were safe and sound.

In her tweet she confided, “We were shooting in a mall that is very close to the place where the horrendous blast occurred. Thankfully we were safe. However we could hear the sirens blazing all over the places and sympathize with the innocent victims who lost their lives.”

Riteish Deshmukh too expressed his condolence for the victims and thanked his friends and well-wishers because of whose prayers he and his wife survived.

Attacking the futility of the terror attack Riteish Deshmukh blasted, "My thoughts go out to the people affected by last night's cowardly attack. Taking innocent lives is no way to protest or make a point."

According to the recent reports the blast occurred at the Erawan shrine, downtown Chidlom district of Bangkok. The shrine is a major Hindu tourist hotspot which is also frequented by Buddhists.

Condemning the heinous blast even Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "I strongly condemn the blast in Bangkok. My thoughts are with the families of the deceased. I pray for a speedy recovery of the injured.”
