The actor took to his social media handle to share the news
For all those who were worried for Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan can now heave a sigh of relief. The actor was stuck in Chennai due to the recent floods that crippled the city. Sharing the news through his Twitter handle, Junior B shared, “Thank you all for the concern. Am safe and dry. Thoughts and prayers with the people more severely affected. #ChennaiFloods.”
The situation in the city is getting worse day by day and two columns of army’s Garrison Infantry Battalion have been pressed into service in Tambaram and Oorapakkam. The Navy is also on stand-by. All flight operations at Chennai airport are on halt. 11 foreign and 9 domestic flights from the airport were put on hold as no landing or take-off was allowed. Officials said they might review the decision to take a call on resuming operations.
The rains that have virtually broken a 100-year-old record with one day’s rainfall covering a month’s average also flooded areas in Vadapalani, Valasaravakkam and Nandamvakkam as nearby lakes overflowed into the city. Most areas of Chennai, which have already been lashed by rains for over a fortnight, went under water today severely disrupting train and bus services.
