Chennai has suffered some of the worst impacts of cyclone Michonne, while the capital city of Tamil Nadu state was hit by heavy rainfall caused by the powerful storm and the city was crippled by widespread waterlogging. Several people are stranded in the city, including actor Vishnu Vishal, who is stuck in Kalapakam.
The actor was rescued by the fire and rescue department and shared photos of the rescue operation on social media. Interestingly, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan can also be seen in the shared photos, which shows that the “PK” of Bollywood has also been stuck by Vishal.
Vishnu Vishal took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share the news of his rescue from the floods in Chennai caused by Cyclone Michaung. While sharing the update, he also shared two photos where a boat can be seen being dispatched to rescue the passengers and Aamir Khan can be seen sitting on the boat. Vishnu Vishal’s wife and famous badminton player Jwala Gutta is also seen in the picture.
In October, Aamir Khan, who is close to his family, especially his mother Zeenat Hussain, decided to move to Chennai. She is receiving care at a private hospital in Chennai. According to a report in India Today, the actor wanted to be by her side during this crucial moment.
Giving an update on the rescue operations, Vishal said on The government has done a great job on this.” So time-testing. Thank you to all the administrative staff who work tirelessly. (sic)”
“More than 30 people were rescued in our villa complex, as well as many elderly people. Thanks to the firefighters for helping us all and for helping others in Kalapakam… We gave them some of the food we had… Please also Helping these people… they are working non-stop to reach out to as many people as possible. It takes a lot of physical effort,” he added in another post.
Vishal had earlier revealed that he was trapped at his home in Kalapakam and water had entered his house, “Water is entering my house and the water level in Kalapakam has risen severely. I have called for help. No No electricity, no wifi. No phone signal. Nothing.” “Only at a certain point on the patio I can get some signal. Hopefully I and many people here can get some help and I can feel the Chin How people across the country feel,” he wrote.
The state’s Industries Minister Dr TRB Rajaa praised Aamir Khan for his patience during the rescue operation X and wrote: “Thank you @TheVishnuVishal for the appreciation and please thank the gentleman next to you who is a Such a fine man! It’s amazing that he didn’t try to manipulate anyone into being rescued! It’s great to see him so down to earth and waiting for his turn to be rescued like any of our fellow citizens. Give a thumbs up to those who try to manipulate and stay A lesson to the man with the name!”
He added: “Hats off to people like Thiru Khan who are sensitive to the scale of the current problem and patiently waiting their turn. We will continue to abide by our rescue plan.”
