Over 200 people have lost their lives and the city of Chennai has been left paralyzed by the floods resulting from heavy downpours in the past few weeks.
     
"I am very proud of what the city had to offer in such a disaster. I think the community held up really well and also would like to thank a few of my friends, namely actor Siddharth and RJ Balaji. They were on the roads (to help people) and the spirit of Chennai came out really well. I feel gutted for the families who have lost everything in this disaster. Once the series is done I will definitely put my best foot forward for those people," said Ashwin.
     
Opener Vijay said he rues not being with his family at this hour but remains hopeful of things normalizing sooner than later.
