Celebrities pray for Phailin victim
New Delhi: After witnessing nature`s fury in the form of tropical cyclone Phailin, celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share the loss and grief of all those affected.
Phailin is said to be one of the biggest cyclones to hit India`s coast in 14 years. At least seven people lost their lives as the cyclone, accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds, swept coastal Odisha Saturday night, according to official sources Sunday.
Here`s what the celebrities had to say:
Amitabh Bachchan: The fury of the gods in cyclone Phailin! Be careful, beware and be protected and be in prayer!
Madhuri Dixit: My prayers go out to all the people affected by cyclone Phailin. May God give them strength to overcome this ordeal.
Akshay Kumar: My prayers with all those impacted by nature`s wrath. Hoping for calm in Odisha, sadly that`s all we can do at this moment. Phailin.
Mira Nair: Holding my breath about Phailin, prayers and courage for the people of my birthplace in Odisha. May nature`s fury be contained.
Shekhar Ravjiani: My prayers for all those facing the wrath of Phailin and respect for the officials who are working overtime to evacuate people to safety.
Tisca Chopra: While our prayers are with those affected by Phailin, it must be said GOI (government of India) has done great, evacuating half a million people is no small task!
Anupam Kher: Every time nature shows its fury, fragility of our existence gets badly exposed. It makes importance of the word `I` so unimportant. Phailin.
Boman Irani: Seems we were more prepared than usual. Even nature seems to respect that and in turn has been less brutal than expected.
