Imagine being stranded in heavy rain and then getting a lift from Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
That’s what happened to a few women in Mumbai recently.
The Big B did his bit by giving a lift to a few women in his car to help them escape the Mumbai rains that have affected life in India’s financial capital.
The road outside Amitabh’s house, Prateeksha, was waist deep in water and entered his reception area.
When the actor decided to take a ride in his SUV (sports utility vehicle) to his second home, Jalsa, in Juhu, he found the women wading through the waterlogged street.
"I opened the door, well just about, to assist a few young ladies in distress, who were beginning to lose their composure, and gave them a ride towards Jalsa," Amitabh posted in a recent entry on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com .
At his Jalsa home, water leaked through into the bedrooms causing more distress to the actor.
"At Jalsa, the water in the bedrooms leaked through despite the tarpaulin protection monsoon covers. I told them (referring to his workers) to put towels, swabs, water resistant solutions, anything," he wrote.
The situation became so chaotic that the actor had to ask his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law, Aishwariya, who are in Singapore along with politician Amar Singh, to stay there for a while.
