This time during the lockdown has forced us all to stay inside our homes to help control the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus. This means we are consuming more amounts of electricity. So, while people were expecting a rise in their electricity bills, they weren’t ready for such a steep rise! And while common people are voicing their disappointment online, celebrities also joined in.

Actress Taapsee Pannu took to her Twitter to complain about the exorbitant bill she received for the month of June. She shared pictures of her bills and questioned the power suppliers for clarification. From bill amounts ranging from Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 5,000, her bill had jumped to a whopping Rs. 36,000, and she said she has not bought any extra electrical appliance for her bill to shoot up like this.

Have a look at her tweets:

Actor Pulkit Samrat and Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain actress, Saumya Tandon, also shared similar stories while replying to Taapsee’s post:

Not just Taapsee, Hum Aapke Hain Koun actress Renuka Shahane also took to Twitter to share the jump in her bill amount from last month.

Actor and comedian, Vir Das tweeted asking, “Anyone else in Mumbai get an electricity bill that is triple what they usually pay?”. He got immediate responses from many like Dino Morea, Amyra Dastur, Neha Dhupia and Kaneez Surka who agreed with him! Amyra even said that she wasn’t living in her flat, but was being charged double the amount anyway.

Here are their tweets:

It is always nice to know we are not alone when it comes to such issues and we hope the electricity board solves this super soon.
