Mumbai: The heavy downpour of rainfall in Mumbai has caused problems to everyone living in the city. About 200mm of rainfall was recorded on Tuesday, which was nine times more than the average recorded.
While people stuck outdoors tried to evacuate themselves safely, few staying indoors also faced a few problems, among them being former Miss Universe Lara Dutta.
In an attempt to stop the unending rain water from entering the large glass doors of her house, Lara used her husband and Indian tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi’s towels from major tournaments to clog the water.
"Putting our Wimbledon, US Open, Aus Open &French Open towels to good use!@Maheshbhupathi #MumbaiRain.Stay safe & indoors if possible folks!," Lara Dutta wrote on Twitter.
An aggrieved Mahesh Bhupathi was quick to respond to his wife’s antics.

Towels have been very dear to tennis players as memories, as they play the biggest tournaments. Bhupathi who has won four men's doubles Grand Slam titles and eight mixed doubles crowns during his career, is also known to have an admirable collection of towels....
