New Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS) Filmmaker Kunal Kohli, who is in Britain with actors Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor to shoot for his next, yet-to-be-titled film, says they are all fine and unaffected by the riots.
“Been busy filming out of London, didn’t hear of the riots till I got frantic messages from people asking our well being. All good where we are,” Kohli posted on his Twitter page Tuesday.
The team is currently in Nottingham, and is expected to return in a day or two.
However, they are quite disturbed by the riots, which began in the British capital’s northern district of Tottenham Saturday over the fatal shooting of a cabbie by police.
“Let’s hope the riots in london settle down by tonight. People have lost their lives, liveyhood, homes. And all for what? (sic),” added Kohli.
Actor Shahid posted: “Sad sad sad…To c this side of the human animal !!! Worst than animals in the wild ! Prayers for all effected ! Peace out man.”
London witnessed a third night of violence as the unrest spread to other cities like Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester. Protesters were seen destroying and looting shops, setting cars and buildings alight, and engaging in clashes with police.
