Mumbai, Dec 5 (IANS) Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who was last seen in his ambitious film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, was stranded in Chennai floods as Cyclone Michaung hit near Bapatla on the Andhra Pradesh coast.

However, the actor has been rescued after 24 hours of being stranded.

Tamil actor Vishnu Vishal, who is known for ‘Ratsasan’, ‘Maaveeran Kittu’, ‘Jeeva’ and others, took to his X, (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday, and shared pictures of the rescue which also show the Bollywood superstar.

The actor shared two pictures from the rescue which show him and Aamir on a boat with people from the rescue department around them.

Vishnu wrote, “Thanks to the fire and rescue department in helping people like us who are stranded Rescue operations have started in karapakkam.. Saw 3 boats functioning already Great work by TN govt in such testing times Thanks to all the administrative people who are working relentlessly (sic).”

Earlier, Vishnu shared his ordeal as he could barely manage to get a signal on his phone from his terrace.

The actor had shared on Twitter, “Water is entering my house and the level is rising badly in karapakkam. I have called for help. No electricity no wifi No phone signal Nothing. Only on terrace at a particular point I get some signal Lets hope I and so many here get some help. I can feel for people all over chennai #staystrong (sic).”

Aamir has temporarily relocated to Chennai to take care of his mother during her treatment.

Cyclone Michaung is a severe cyclonic storm which swirled over the Bay of Bengal, as it moved to the north coast of Tamil Nadu before it headed to Andhra Pradesh.
