Big B saddened to see deserted Kolkata streets amid coronavirus lockdown

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to express his concern to see roads and monuments for the first time in Kolkata empty amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Big B said he was shocked to see streets and landmarks of his favourite city Kolkata deserted.

Reacting to photographs of a completely vacated Howrah Bridge, Red Road and other parts of Kolkata shared by a fan on Twitter, Bachchan could not believe his eyes.

Retweeting the pictures, he wrote: “This is incredible .. especially for those that have lived and do live in Kolkata .. this is Howrah Bridge, Red Road (?), the flyover to the Airport .. it is impossible to imagine this sight.”

Kolkata holds a special place in the veteran actor’s heart. He landed his first job in the city during 1962 and 1968 before trying his luck in Bollywood.

Reminiscing about the City of Joy, Big B had once written on his blog: “Calcutta was the epitome of the celebration during these times in the entire Country… What a city.. what atmosphere.. and what energy.. never experienced anything like that ever again.. timeless.”
