Heavy rains in several parts of Maharashtra, including Kolhapur, Sangli, Thane, and Pune have increased water levels in rivers and dams, which has also resulted in floods in Maharashtra. In Kolhapur, schools, and college were shut due to flooding in the district.

In such a scenario, popular Marathi actor Subodh Bhave has extended his support to the flood-affected people of Maharashtra. The actor, known for his theatre work and his latest Marathi TV show, Tula Pahate Re, took to Instagram to share a video in which he can be heard speaking about the situation.

Subodh captioned the video as: "We are cancelling the play 'Ashrunchi Jhali Phule' starting from today in Kolhapur, Satara, Karad, and Sangli. It's not appropriate to continue with the play when you're in trouble. First, you take care of yourself and your family, be safe. We will come back with the play. Take care, friends."

According to the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), more than 3,000 people in flood-affected Kolhapur district and 2,900 people from flood-affected Sangli district have been rescued on Tuesday. Yesterday, a dozen rescue teams of the Indian Navy were deployed in Western Maharashtra. The rescue teams left for Sangli on Thursday night by road in government transport vehicles. The Navy had to travel by road after their airlift was aborted due to unfavourable weather conditions in Sangli and adjoining Kolhapur.

Many parts of Maharashtra and Karnataka have been hit by excessive flooding due to incessant rains and the Western Naval Command of the Indian Navy has mobilised resources to provide assistance to the affected areas.
