Expressing grief over two recent tragedies- Cyclone Amphan and Pakist jet crash, lyricist Javed Akhtar and wife Shabana Azmi extended condolences to the families of victims.

"Deeply sad and concerned about the calamity that West Bengal and Odisha have to face in these already terrible days of the corona," Akhtar wrote on Twitter.

In another post, the renowned lyricist extended condolences to the "families of all those who lost their lives" in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crash in Karachi on Friday.

"Some times one feels that calamities also come in a cluster. Very sad," he added.

Cyclone Amphan made landfall in coastal regions of Odisha and West Bengal on May 20, killing more than 100 and leaving thousands affected.

Two days later, a PIA jet crashed into a residential colony in Pakistan's Karachi, leaving more than 90 people dead.

Both tragedies struck at a time when the world is grappling with coronavirus crisis.

"#AmphanSuperCyclone #PakistanPlaneCrash how many more disasters are going to come our way in the midst of #COVID 19? Condolences to families who have lost their loved ones. Pray that rehabilitation efforts are put in place immediately," Shabana Azmi wrote on the microblogging site.
