“Many have lost their lives in chopper accidents. Got caught in a thunderstorm mid air today and for a moment, I thought it was all over. Thank you god. Landed safe and sound in the middle of a road. The pilot showed great character. Saved us, gave me a second chance!” Sen wrote on his Facebook page.

Sen is in the northeast since the last few days promoting his new film “Aisa Yeh Jahaan”.

The musician also uploaded photographs of the chopper landing on the highway and said, “these people came over to see if I was alright. They say you witness love in the strangest of places and situations.. I am blessed.. Jaan bachi, toh laakhon paaye!”
