At last, he offered prayers for everyone’s safety and well being amid such a crisis. Apart from Anil, Anupam Kher also penned his emotions on the same.

He also wished and hoped that the year 2020 passes soon and also urged his fans and followers to bow down and seek apology from nature for all the wrong each one has done.

The devastation #AmphanCyclon has caused in Odisha and mainly in Bengal is both frightening & very saddening.

Earlier, on May 21, other prominent stars also showed up their support for the people in Kolkata. Bollywood’s dashing star Vicky Kaushal and filmmaker Shoojot Sircar also condoled the death of the people who lost their lives and also offered prayers for the families and people in Kolkata. Cyclone Amphan was a massive cyclone that is 700 km in extent and 15 km in height when it was rotating around its center in the central parts of the Bay of Bengal on May 18. According to multiple reports, Cyclone Amphan hit West Bengal and Odisha on May 20 with Kolkata suffering massive damage.
Cyclone Amphan is the fiercest to form over the Bay of Bengal and the first super cyclone since 1999 when Odisha was hit tremendously and claimed 10,000 lives back then. 'Amphan' has ravaged Kolkata and several parts of West Bengal as it left behind a trail of destruction by uprooting trees, destroying thousands of homes and swamping low-lying areas of the state.
