Chennai Floods: Katrina Kaif's family stranded, Bollywood actress tense
Mumbai, Dec 4: Entire Tamil Nadu, especially its capital city Chennai has been going through a rough phase as the state has been hit by the worst flood of the century.
Normal life has been disrupted across the state. Indian army, Indian Air Force, NDRF have been deployed to rescue people who are stranded at different places.
Now, Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif expressed her concern for flood-hit Tamil Nadu. The actress was tense as her family members too have been stranded near the affected area.
The actress was quoted as saying, "My mom lives very near in the area...actually today I was very worried about it because someone had called me from there."
"Unfortunately natural disasters are not something that we can really do much about. But I think if there are any groups or relief work that is happening, everyone should do their bit for sure, the actress added.
Since most of the places across Chennai and its suburbs have been cut off due to heavy rain, oil tankers were unable to transport fuel, according to Indian Oil Corporation officials. Absence of tanker drivers has compounded the problem.
Essential commodities, however, remained in scarce supply. While supply of state-run Aavin-milk packets were totally hit, a packet of one litre milk sold by private suppliers was priced at Rs 90, whereas 1 kg tomato was available at Rs 80/90.
