"One does not know where to begin. So much is happening and happening fast and in such a destructive manner... There are deaths of prominent celebrities, earthquakes in northeast, devastating in intensity in Sikkim particularly, monstrous floods in Orissa ... one just does not know where to start or indeed start at all," he added.

The cremation will be held at 3.30pm, producer Vivek Vaswani posted on his Twitter page.
