"My heartfelt condolences to the families of persons killed and taken hostage. I was feeling sick in the stomach when the fire broke out at the Taj. What would the people caught inside be going through. The fire fighters were doing their best but my imagination was running wild and I was feeling helpless watching other people trapped in the rooms adjoining the fire," he wrote.
The actor also wrote terrorists have no religion. "My heartfelt condolences to the family of the brave officers of the Mumbai Police who lost their lives leading from the front to take on these terrorists. Especially Hemant Karkare of the ATS who in the recent past was being targeted by various political parties for the work that he was doing. When will these politicians realize and admit that terrorists HAVE NO RELIGION. Terrorists are not Hindu or Muslim or Christian," he added.
He prayed that the security forces end the crisis soon. However, he has come down heavily on politicians who are trying to make use of the crisis for their career, stating that they should learn to be responsible at least this time around. He also expressed the need for young and dynamic leaders who can take care of the country.
