NEW DELHI: Seems like Akshay Kumar too was shocked to see the unexplained beaching of a dead whale on Juhu beach in Mumbai on Thursday night.
The 48-year-old actor took to his Twitter handle to post a video of the 35 feet dead mammal, identified as a Bryde’s Whale, saying, “Look what washed ashore Juhu beach...this mighty whale measuring over 35 feet! No wonder it gathered an audience.”
According to the forest officials, from initial examination, the whale died a day or two back. It bloated and was then carried in by the tide to the beach.
They added that internal decomposition of the organs had already started, and the outer skin of the whale, around the tail and stomach had started to peel off.
