Amitabh Bachchan, has expressed grief over the loss of lives and damage caused to heritage sites in the country due to an earthquake. Measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, the quake flattened houses and buildings in Nepal yesterday.
Bachchan shot for the famous song Pyar Mei Dil Pe at the Durbar Square, a Unesco World Heritage site in Kathmandu, which has been wrecked following the earthquake. “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.
