Mumbai: Mumbai faced heavy downpour on Tuesday, bringing the perennially busy city to a rare halt.

Mumbaikars were reminded of the fateful 26 July deluge in 2005 when the rain gods went berserk on Tuesday.

 

While several people pointed out how the flooding saw exaggerated media coverage considering there were much more intense floods in Bihar and other parts of India recently, our Bollywood stars based in Mumbai can perhaps be forgiven for not tweeting then.

Most of the celebrities took to Twitter asking their fans to be safe and even shared helpline numbers for those who could be stranded.

From Dilip Kumar to Priyanka Chopra, most of them expressed their concern for fans in the situation.

Not just that, many of them had to actually face a tricky situation when their cars got stuck in the waters.

Anupam Kher, Mahesh Bhatt and R Madhavan shared videos and pictures on social media to reveal how their cars got stuck in the waterlogged roads.

Bhatt went on to say that ‘generous strangers’ had to actually pull them out of their car and that two of his sisters almost drowned in the flood.

 

However, some celebrities also saw the funnier side in the chaotic situation with Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan sharing light-hearted tweets apart from the serious ones.

Even Twitteratti were at their hilarious best and even trolled Sidharth Malhotra for his recent tweet where he tried to promote his film ‘A Gentleman’ while expressing solidarity with the people of Punjab and Haryana post the violence in the aftermath of the conviction of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
