Nepal Earthquake: Big B mourns loss of life, heritage damage


Megastar Amitabh Bachchan mourned the loss of so many lives in Nepal earthquake and he also expressed his grieve over the damage of Nepal heritage. He recalls about shooting ‘Mahan’ song with Zeenat Aman in 1983. The song was shot at the Durbar Square, a Unesco World Heritage site in old Kathmandu.

“In the face of such disaster, we mourn with them that have been displaced or lost to the heavens. It is a most horrid site to see those buildings in absolute destruction… some of them of great heritage value”, Bachchan posted on his blog late on Saturday night.

“Our prayers go out for Nepal and all those other centres of the northern belt, who have felt the fury of the earthquake”, the actor said.

On Twitter, he wrote: “O God… this is Nepal earthquake!!! I shot a song here for ‘Mahaan’ with Zeenat Aman .. pray all well”.

Measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, the quake kills over 2200 people. Even the 183-year-old iconic Dharahara tower, which gives the panoramic view of Kathmandu devastated.
