Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan on Sunday said he felt at the ‘‘lowest and worst as an entertainer’’ after the blast during his concert in Colombo on Saturday night that killed two and injured 15.
The Sri Lankan government has begun a probe into the incident.
A bomb exploded in the stands of the open-air venue just as the show was coming to an end. The concert, part of the Temptations 2004 series, included Preity Zinta, Priyanka Chopra, Saif Ali Khan, Zayed Khan and Celina Jaitly.
The star troupe was whisked away immediately after the blast arrived in Mumbai this morning. ‘‘God was kind to me but I feel very sad that innocent people who had come with so much love to see me lost their lives and got hurt. I pray to Allah for the departed souls and condemn this dastardly and unwanted action,’’ he said. The actor added that he felt at his lowest and worst ‘‘as an entertainer who has committed his life to bring happiness and spread smiles amongst people’’.
