Top Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor, who is currently in Britain with actress Priyanka Chopra and director Kunal Kohli shooting their next film, has been stunned by the violence that’s engulfed the country.

Shahid posted on his Twitter page: "Sad sad sad...To c this side of the human animal !!! Worst than animals in the wild ! Prayers for all effected ! Peace out man."

Kunal wrote, "Been busy filming out of London, didn't hear of the riots till I got frantic messages from people asking about our well being. All good where we are."

"Let's hope the riots in london settle down by tonight. People have lost their lives, livelyhood, homes. And all for what?," added Kunal.

The team is currently in Nottingham, and is expected to return in a day or two.

London witnessed a third night of violence as the unrest spread to other cities, including Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bristol and Manchester. Protesters were seen destroying and looting shops, setting cars and buildings alight, and clashing with police.
