On Monday morning, Mumbai came to a halt after a massive blackout in various parts of the city. Amitabh Bachchan, known for his quick tweets, was the first celebrity to share an update on Twitter. Mr. Bachchan said he connected to the internet via a dongle to get in touch with his fans and talk quickly. Asking everyone to stay calm and be patient, Big B tweeted: “The whole city in power outage … somehow handling this message … keep calm, everything will be fine.” Several suburban trains on the Central Line and the Western Line have been affected due to the power failure and so are the traffic signs in various parts of the city.
