  • Notre-Dame Cathedral Fire Leaves Bollywood Heartbroken: History Turns To Ashes

As the news of a fire at the Notre Dame broke out, Bollywood celebrities like Rishi Kapoor, Nimrat Kaur and Arjun Kapoor among many others took to social media to voice their heartache on seeing the iconic cathedral in flames.


A devastating fire that engulfed the Notre Dame, the 850-year-old Unesco world heritage landmark in Paris, was brought under control on Tuesday morning, while the Cathedral's main structure as well as its two towers has been saved.


The fire began at around 6.30 p.m., on Monday and quickly caused the collapse of the Cathedral's spectacular Gothic spire and the destruction of its roof structure, which dated back to the 13th century.


Here's what the celebrities have tweeted:


Rishi Kapoor: Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral will survive! It has the good wishes and prayers of millions.

French billionaire businessman Bernard Arnault’s family and his LVMH luxury goods group will donate 200 million euros ($226 million) to help repair Paris’ Notre-Dame cathedral, said a statement issued on behalf of Arnault.


“The Arnault family and the LVMH group would like to show their solidarity ata this time of national tragedy, and are joining up to help rebuild this extraordinary cathedral, which is a symbol of France, of its heritage and of French unity,” said the statement.


Arnault’s pledge follows a similar 100 million euros donation for Notre-Dame from Francois Henri Pinault, who heads the Kering luxury goods company.
