Residents across Mumbai have been complaining about abnormally high electricity bills, which they received after the lockdown. "So like everyone else, I'm struck too @Adani_Elec_Mum. Time to explain this calculation. We can at least be heard here, what about all those who can't?," tweeted Kaur on Wednesday.

"Are we just meant to accept these inflated electricity rates and pay them? @Adani_Elec_Mum we have received a bill that is three times our usual amount. Could you please explain?," shared Khan.

Reacting to Khan's tweet, Dhupia wrote, "Yes.... same here. Can someone reply from @Adani_Elec_Mum so that we are not left in the dark."

On Sunday, Taapsee Pannu was the first Bollywood personality who called out the power firm for overcharging. Soon, Renuka Shahane, Huma Qureshi, Ranvir Shorey, Dino Morea and Vir Das, among others, were complaining about inflated electricity bills.

"What are these new electricity rates? @Adani_Elec_Mum. Last month I paid 6k and this month 50k? What is this new price surge? Kindly enlighten us," Qureshi had shared in a tweet a couple of days back. Reacting to Qureshi's tweet, Khan wrote, "And was any light shone on the matter?"
