Mumbai | Jagran Entertainment Desk: There have been several incidents when Bollywood stars have complained of inflated electricity bills, slamming the electricity boards. Several stars have shared their grievances on their social media accounts upon the unusually large amounts of electricity bills that they have been receiving and demanded suitable action from the electricity providers.    

On Sunday, Arshad Warsi also joined the list, expressing his anger after receiving Rs 1.03 lakh electricity bill. The 52-year-old actor on Sunday tweeted that Rs 1.03 lakh were debited from his account on July 5 for the electricity.

“This is my electricity bill from highway robbers called ADANI, who is having a good laugh at our cost. UPDATE: INR 1,03,564.00 debited from A/c on 05-JUL-2020,” he tweeted.

Warsi, who was last seen in Total Dhamaal, also said that he will have to sell some of his paintings to pay his Adani electric bill. “People please buy my paintings, I need to pay my Adani electric bill, kidneys am keeping for the next bill,” he tweeted.

However, Warsi in another tweet that “there is a light at the end of the tunnel” and his problem has been resolved. “And yes there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Quick response from @Adani_Elec_Mum problem solved. All you have to do is contact them.... thank you,” he tweeted.

Warsi is not the first actor who has complained of inflated electricity bills. Several actors, including Taapsee Pannu, Soha Ali Khan, Neha Dhupia, Vir Das and Renuka Sahane, have complained about getting inflated bills 3-10 times the usual amount.

Following the complains of the Bollywood stars, Adani and other electricity utilities like Tata Power, BEST and Mahadiscom have come under extreme criticism for charging inflated bills during the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
