Celebs send prayers to the over bridge collapse victims

A foot-over-bridge near Mumbai's landmark Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus railway station collapsed on Thursday evening. The over bridge was under repair but it was still in use. The collapse took place around 7.30 pm - the busiest hours of the evening, when footfall was at its highest. Bollywood celebs have come out in support of the victims and their families. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi also tweeted to say he was "deeply anguished by the loss of lives". Here's what the celebrities have to say:
