Leonardo DiCaprio makes post on Chennais water crisis

Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who is also an environmentalist, has made an Instagram post on the ongoing water crisis in Chennai.  Quoting a report by the BBC, he has spoken of the level of the crisis.  

"The southern Indian city of Chennai is in crisis, after the four main water reservoirs ran completely dry. The acute water shortage has forced the city to scramble for urgent solutions and residents have to stand in line for hours to get water from government tanks. As the water levels depleted, hotels and restaurants started to shut down temporarily, and the air con was turned off in the city's metro. Officials in the city continue to try and find alternative sources of water - but the community continues to pray for rain," the post reads.
