The heart-wrenching post added that ‘My Aai is not with me, neither is Baba. Now I have to learn how to live from the beginning. But doesn’t feel like it’. Was I a good son? Did I do enough to save them? I’ll have to live with these questions forever. Can’t wait to see them again. I wish the day comes soon’.

Soon after the post of famed comedian, Bollywood stars including Varun Dhawan, Rajkumar Rao, Kartik Aryan, and many others responded to the heartfelt note.

Last year in March, Bam donated his entire earnings from the month of March to aid the battle against the Covid pandemic. ‘Usually, I prefer to not talk about these things but our country needs us right now, this is important and we need to go out of our way to help everyone,’ he wrote.
