"By the grace of God we survived. Else I shudder to think what could have happened", said Namish.

Even in just two days of heavy rains, Mumbai came to a standstill. The city was stuck due to heavy rainfall in Mumbai city from last two days. Celebrities like Kriti Sanon, Sonam Kapoor, Rakuul Preet Singh, Krystle D'souza who got stuck in the rainfall.

While Rakul Preet Singh was stranded at the airport, Kriti's flight was diverted from Delhi to Ahmedabad and she was mobbed at the Ahmedabad airport. Furthermore, Krystle D'souza was stuck in a flood when actor Karan Patel came to her rescue.

Amidst all of this, another actor who was badly affected by the Mumbai rains was TV actor Namish Taneja.

Namish Taneja who shot to fame with the popular TV show Swaragini and was last seen in Main Maayke Chali Jaaungi show faced a horrible accident on Monday. The actor's car apparently got struck by a lightning. The shocking part was when the lightning affected his car Namish was there with his whole family members.

While talking to Spotboye, the actor shared his ordeal. "We were somewhere in Four Bungalows. I was at-the-wheel and my family was with me in the car. It was raining cats and dogs. As I was about to start the car, I heard a big bumping sound. It was as if something huge had fallen on the car's roof. To my horror, I heard people shouting 'bijli Giri, bijli giri'. This is when we realized that lightning had hit our vehicle," Namish Taneja shared.

He also added, "I had heard, when lightning strikes a vehicle, it goes through the metal frame into the ground. We then need to fold our hands in our lap and avoid touching anything metallic within the car for some time. It takes a couple of minutes for the electrical current to pass through the vehicle and enter into the ground, and only after that, it is technically safe to exit. We did exactly the same."

"By the grace of God we survived. Else I shudder to think what could have happened," Taneja who will be soon seen in a new show titled Vidya, concluded.
