Sri Lankan Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez described as "extremely sad" the killings of 186 people in a string of suicide bombings in her country on Easter Sunday.
Jacqueline, whose father is Sri Lankan and mother Malaysian, tweeted: "Extremely sad at the news of bombings in Sri Lanka. It's unfortunate that one is not able to see that violence is like a chain reaction. This has to stop."
Jacqueline, who lives in Mumbai, made her Bollywood debut in 2009 with the film "Aladin" and has acted in around 15 Hindi films.
