Renuka Shahane on Wednesday urged Mumbaikars to remain indoors to avoid getting caught in the heavy rains that has inundated the city. The actor took to her Facebook page and shared pictures of her car after it got submerged, leaving her with no option but to wade through knee-deep water.
In her Facebook post, Shahane wrote, “Safely reached home. Enthu cutlet me and Rasika Deodhar trying to reach work wading in knee deep water. My poor car is totally submerged under water now #mumbairains. Mumbaikars stay safe. Don’t venture out of your homes unless necessary. Their was chaos with school children stuck in school vans and cars overheating and catching fire. Truly terrifying!!!”
