Almost the whole nation is aware of the problems Mumbai had to face in the last two days. The whole city got flooded. The toll of loss of life and property is continuously rising. Where other celebrities were posting pictures of the places they were stuck in and busy cursing the government, Amitabh Bachchan called it just a natural disaster and compared the situation with what Texas is facing.

Amitabh Bachchan’s tweets are providing much needed comic relief in the face of incessant rain and flood situation in Mumbai. The superstar has been tweeting since Tuesday about the spirit of Mumbai, rising real estate prices and Visarjan chaos. But what makes his tweets rather hilarious is that each of them comes with a rather inappropriate picture of him.

When Amitabh posted a series of tweets on the heavy rains in Mumbai, fans were not too impressed with the insensitive nature of the tweets and the fact that he posted his pictures along with these. He even compared the rains with Hurricane Harvey.

In light of the flooding situation that stopped Mumbai, the 74-year-old posted on Twitter saying: “‘Mumbai real estate prices hit an all time high -Every building is now sea facing.’~ from Prasoon Pandey,” attached with a picture of him.

“Flooded roads, Police common man helping against terrible odds .. amidst this ‘Visarjan’ with band music still on .. amazing Mumbai,” he wrote in another post with another picture of him.

“T 2531 – Don’t try to fight nature .. don’t put blame .. what did the most powerful nation in the World do against Hurricane Harvey ??,” he tweeted in another post.

“T 2531 – Lashing rain .. flooded water logged .. but so admirable to see Mumbai Police, a common man helping out .. true Mumbaikar Spirit,” Big B tweeted in another post.

“T 2532 – A peculiar eerie quiet in the morning of Mumbai .. and now the rain has started again .. BUT Mumbaikar Spirit is tough .. JAI HIND,” he tweeted.
