Mumbai, Sep 15 (UNI) Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan narrowly missed the bomb blast at Connaught Place in New Delhi when on noticing a traffic snarl, he turned back and did not proceed to a function there.

''And the blast happened just then,'' megastar Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog. ''Shattered and shocked, Abhishek called to say he was alright.'' ''But what of those who bore the brunt? Innocent, unaware victims,'' he said adding he was in pain and anguish after hearing of the blasts on Saturday.

Abhishek was in Delhi for press promotional activities as well as an Omega event besides shooting for the last few shots for ''Dilli 6.'' ''We live in difficult times.
