New Delhi, Sep 17 (UNI) The September 13 blasts in Delhi, which left the entire nation in a state of shock, have deeply affected Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan.
Abhishek, who happened to be in Delhi and close to Connaught Place on Saturday, when the blasts occurred, has said the human tragedy caused by it left him perturbed.
''I was near Connaught Place when I heard a loud bang. I turned around since I was getting late for an event. It was only after reaching home that I saw the scenes of the blast on TV.
''It was really horrifying and shocking. Infact, at that time I was left too shocked and speechless,'' Abhishek told a TV channel last night.
The sense of shock led Abhishek to call off the event as well as some interviews he was to give the following day.
Speaking to the news channel 'Headlines Today', the actor said, ''The intention of cancelling the event was not to cut short any activity. I called on the event out of sensitivity to the situation and safety of the guests that had come to attend the function.
''At a point like this, I am sure everybody wants to be back home with their families...the decision was to say that whoever wanted to go back home should do so.'' On his cancelling interviews scheduled the next day, Abhishek said, ''I thought it was wrong to do an interview where we would talk about something which was different from what the situation in the city was.''
