Big B mourns loss of lives, heritage sites in Nepal earthquake

Amitabh Bachchan's 72 birthday

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who shot a song from his 1983 film “Mahan” in Nepal, has expressed grief over the loss of lives and damage caused to heritage sites in the country due to a powerful earthquake.

Measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale, the quake flattened houses and buildings in Nepal yesterday, killing nearly 1911 people so far.

Bachchan shot for the famous song “Pyar Mei Dil Pe” with co-star Zeenat Aman at the Durbar Square, a Unesco World Heritage site in Kathmandu, which has been wrecked following the massive 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.

The landmark Dharhara Tower in Nepal has also collapsed.
