As heavy rains continue to cripple normal life in Mumbai, Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan also found his home and office in the suburbs inundated.
Rainwater filled up the lawns of Bachchan's home Prateeksha in Juhu and the ground floor of his office 'Janak' located nearby as rains lashed the city and suburbs since Monday night and the downpour continued throughout the day on Tuesday.
The 66-year-old actor, who is recuperating from stomach pain, was constantly on the move from 'Prateeksha' to his other bungalow 'Jalsa' and the office helping his staff to shift his belongings from the ground floor to higher positions.
Prateeksha is inundated. The road outside is in waist- deep water and the lawn, even though it is built on a rise, has been filled up and threatening to push the rain into the house. As I prepare to move furniture and stuff from the ground to higher positions, mini waves drift in from the road into the driveway and reach the first step into the house,"
Bachchan wrote on his blog.
"Water has entered into the reception area and the staff, bare footed pants rolled up, are frantically trying to clear drains of any obstruction so the water can flow out. But flow out where? On to the road which is waist-deep itself. It shall all come back!"
