Heavy rains that lashed the city today after a long lull set some of the Bollywood personalities complaining though few of them appeared to enjoy it.
"From Juhu to airport have been on the road for two hours already. Mumbai breaks down in rains. At least rains are bringing water to a city on brink of acute shortage of water," Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur said on micro-blogging site twitter.
"What heavy rains. So wish I didn’t have to go anywhere. Killer traffic on roads. Its just madness," actress Ameesha Patel said.
Actress Lara Dutta is making plans of trekking. "Can hear a good monsoon trek in the ghats calling! Time to stretch those muscles and put them to some use! Muscles are ready, hair is complaining!," Lara said.
"For all the sceptics at the mumbai met dept who forecasted monsoon failure and water cuts please look out of ur window. Its pouring," Director-Producer Raj Kaushal tweeted.
"You know its a holiday when even your driver calls in saying can’t reach because of the water logging. So time for some pakodas and garam chai. In a month where there is no official state or national or festival holiday, trust the Mumbai rains to give you an off midweek," Kaushal said.
While, Bipasha Basu says, "Surprised to step out of my house and find myself in Venice!Just need to swap my car for a Gondola and my driver for a handsome gondola guy!."
"Just got my new 3D camera! Can’t stop shooting… There is nothing better than shooting rains in 3D! Endless layers!," Filmmaker Shirish Kunder said.

"Drinking my green tea called "love spell", sitting at my window with taz, watching the rain raindrops bathe my flowers, raindrops + me = bliss," VJ-actress Maria Goretti said.(PTI)
