Last night, she tweeted this, as reports came in of a bomb blast near a Hindu temple surrounded by hotels and malls:
Bomb set off just opp the mall we are currently in -can hear the sirens blazing all over- we are safe but feel terrible for the lives lost.- Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) August 17, 2015
Genelia's actor husband Riteish Deshmukh was with her and Instagrammed a few seconds of video footage of an ambulance racing down the street where the blast happened.
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.- Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) August 18, 2015
Thank you all for your prayers and concern. We all are fine.- Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) August 18, 2015
Genelia, 28, was in Bangkok filming an advertisement.
The blast left 21 dead and about a 100 injured, most of them tourists. Thailand's junta leader has said that security forces have identified a suspect.
