Aamir Khan, who is quite close to his family and especially his mother Zeenat Hussain, had decided to shift his base to Chennai in October. The actor's mother was under the care of a private medical facility in Chennai. Sources close to the actor told Indiatoday.in that the actor wanted to be by her side during this crucial time.

The now-viral pictures of Khan and other people were shared on X by Vishal. “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.”

The actor was recused by the fire and rescue officials after nearly 24 hours of being stranded in Karpakkam area. The star was left without water, electricity and a weak phone signal due to waterlogging.

The news was shared by fellow actor Vishnu Vishal, who earlier took to social media and sought help.

Reportedly, Aamir Khan is staying with Kollywood actor Vishnu Vishal at his residence in Karpakkam area.

On the professional front, Aamir Khan will soon start working on his upcoming film titled Sitare Zameen Par. The actor recently mentioned that the film's theme is similar to Taare Zameen Par.

Meanwhile, heavy rains continued to batter Chennai and its neighbouring districts and caused flooding as Cyclone Michaung hit the city. Most parts of the city, including Marina Beach and the Madras International Meenambakkam Airport, were submerged in water.

Cyclone Michaung will not be affecting northern India. Its effects will be felt in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Chattisgarh and Odisha. Additionally, there will be an indirect impact on northeastern states, Jharkhand, and Bihar, with anticipated light rainfall, according to Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, the Director-General of the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).
