Tragedy at ‘Raees’ train promotion unfortunate: Sidharth

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra said it’s unfortunate that a person died during a massive rush to have a glimpse of superstar Shah Rukh Khan at Vadodara railway station in Gujarat.

“It depends where you are travelling if you are travelling to a place where people know you then one can’t do much activities or anything that openly. It’s very unfortunate.

It’s very sad. I don’t know the exact details so I can’t say much,” the 32-year-old actor told reporters here at an event.

Tragedy hit SRK’s train promotion campaign for his upcoming “Raees” when a man died of cardiac arrest during a massive rush to have a glimpse of the superstar at Vadodara railway station in Gujarat that also left two policemen injured.

The “Student of the Year” star believes that marketing movies is like a norm and actors are doing their job.

“I think all of us have the intention to promote our films. We have been marketing films, going out to promote, it’s a norm. I was not there to experience and to see what happened (but) I read about it. It’s a very sad and unfortunate. It’s an accident and no one has done it intentionally, ” he added.

“Raees” will be clashing with Hrithik Roshan starrer “Kaabil” and Sidharth will see both the films, which release tomorrow.

“I want to see both the films. In college days we used to see one film after the other. Whichever film’s ticket I get first I will watch it,” he quipped.
