Today, Mumbai saw a major setback as the city experienced a sudden power cut due to grid failure by early afternoon. Several Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to react to the disruption of electricity in the city.
Bollywood celebs including Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Armaan Malik, Kangana Ranaut, Nimrat Kaur, Ali Fazal, and others took to social media and urged people to stay calm. Amongst everyone, actor Sonu Sood also shared his thoughts on his Twitter handle and asked everyone to be patient.
"Entire city in power outage .. somehow managing this message .. keep calm all shall be well .. Amitabh Bachchan," wrote Amitabh Bachchan.
In his tweet, Sonu also mentioned how the entire country came to know when the electricity in Mumbai went off for two hours. But even today, there are many houses in the country that do not get electricity even for two hours.
“मुंबई में दो घंटे से बिजली नहीं तो पूरे देश को पता चल गया। लेकिन आज भी देश में ऐसे बहुत से घर हैं जिन्हें दो घंटों के लिए भी बिजली नहीं मिलती। इसलिए कृपा धैर्य रखें। (The entire country came to know there was no electricity in Mumbai for two hours. But even today there are many houses in the country that do not get electricity even for two hours. So please be patient.)”
Raveena remembered memories of power cut during old days and took to her Twitter as shared about her experience: “Batti back.Hope all safe and well and not too inconvenienced.Not seen a power outage like this since we were young,back then,those long hours in the heat,restless summer nights,eating roti and dal lit up with candles.Brought back memories.But this is 2020 kuch bhi ho sakta hai.”
