If you have been following the news, you’ll know of the tragic terror attack which took place late last night in Manchester at Ariana Grande‘s concert. 22 people have died and over 59 people are reported to be injured, which also included children. A lot of parents are frantically looking for their children who were at the concert last night and the city’s police are doing everything they can to get them back home safely.

Ariana tweeted this morning saying she’s absolutely broken and has no words.

We can’t imagine what she must be feeling after the horrid attack. Celebrities from world over offered their sympathies and condolences to those affected, including our Bollywood celebrities.

Actress and singer Sophie Choudry too was obviously disturbed by what went down and spoke her mind.

She told BollywoodLife about how she’s a performer too and concerts are meant to be everyone’s fantasy land and safe space.

What happened in Manchester is absolutely heartbreaking and sickening at the same time. Targeting kids and women who had gone to see one of their idols perform live?? What kind of monsters do that?!!! Concerts are meant to be your safe haven, your fantasy moments.

She also added,

As a singer performer I am forever performing at shows and concerts. Most of them are private or corporate events but I’ve been fortunate enough to perform at Wembley arena and even royal Albert hall in the past. I’ve performed at events & festivals where there have been more than 20,000 people. I can’t begin to imagine how broken I would feel if something like this happened at one of my gigs. It’s not the artist’s fault but how can you not feel guilty and scarred by this. My heart goes out to Ariana and my real belief is that she must go on with courage and strength and not let terror defeat her.

Couldn’t agree more with her. This is really devastating. Our prayers and thoughts are with all those affected.
