Taking to his Instagram stories, Rahul shared videos of walking through knee-deep water. He can be heard saying in the clip, “It rained for just two hours, and look at the situation.

Rahul also thanked the man who helped him come out of the situation. He wrote, “Thank you my first family in Dubai…@mansiharshil and @ronilrishi for bailing me out…and helping me reach the airport when the whole of Dubai has come to a standstill!”
