Mumbai was flooded yet again yesterday, September 4, after heavy rains hit the city. People struggled to get home and had to wade through knee-high, and in some places waist-high, water, while many vehicles like cars and autorickshaws were almost submerged. 

In such a scenario, Arjun Rampal recorded a video that showed a Mercedes stuck in the middle of a street that was flooded. Arjun Rampal took the video from his car and shared it on Instagram, captioning it, "Only Indian cars survive in this weather. Be safe. Drive Indian."

Without knowing the make and model of Arjun's car, an Instagram user decided to troll the actor by commenting, "What rubbish bro so you also stop using Range Rover and buy a Maruti alto @rampal72" 

Arjun Rampal had a funny response to the troll. He simply said, "@user34906 took the video from my Alto" Reading Arjun's response, other Instagram users couldn't help but laugh along. One of them commented, "@rampal72 you nailed it", and yet another wrote, "@rampal72 Savage bro".

Now, we don't know if Arjun Rampal was kidding when he said what he did, or he was being serious. Serious or not, the actor's response sure cracked us up!

Arjun Rampal and girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades recently became parents to a baby boy whom they named Arik. Arjun and Gabriella had been dating for a year when they announced the news of the pregnancy in a lovely social media post. 

In an interview with mid-day, Gabriella shared her experience of having a baby, "I was never one of those people who thought of having a baby. I am actually the youngest of my friends, and we would have conversations such as 'ok, is it time to have a baby yet?'. I would even look at people having babies, and think 'I don't know if I want to do this'. But it all happened very organically, and it may sound like a cliche now, but it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. I used to think I was in love [with Rampal], but then Arik happened."
