South Indian actor Siddharth described his woes faced due to the heavy rains that have been lashing for the past two days in Chennai. The Jigarthanda-actor posted images of his waterlogged house on Twitter and sought relief for the rest of Tamil Nadu. “Bathrooms submerged. Water coming out of the drains. I am an affluent actor. This is my house. Imagine rest of TN,” he tweeted.
“Many people died in their cars in the Bombay floods because power windows and central locking jammed. Don't sit in broken down cars,” he added.
Siddharth also announced that he would drive around doing pick ups and drops tomorrow. He also urges people to contact RJ Balaji and him as they are trying to contact groups to spread information for stranded people.
After some days of respite, fresh downpour on Tuesday crippled life here, flooding numerous roads and neighbourhoods and causing traffic jams and power cuts, residents said.
Trains were delayed and some were cancelled as authorities struggled to cope with the aftereffects of the fresh torrential rains in the Tamil Nadu capital.
The weather department has warned of heavy rains in Chennai and northern Tamil Nadu over the next three days.
