Mumbai: Shortly after Kangana Ranaut took a jibe at Mumbai, tweeting that the city feels like Pakistan occupied Kashmir and calling Mumbai Police a big sham in the name of a police force, a section of Bollywood has come out to strongly defend the city as well as its cops.
Dia Mirza tweeted: “Mumbai meri Jaan. Lived and worked here for almost twenty years. Moved here to live on my own at age 19. This city embraced me with open arms and kept me safe. A cosmopolitan, inclusive, diverse, beautiful city.”
“Mumbai Hindustan hai,” Riteish Deshmukh wrote in Hindi. “You know what›s special about my city Bombay/ Mumbai? You could spew venom on it but it will still welcome you with open arms. Learn magnanimity from this city,” filmmaker Hansal Mehta wrote, in a clear address to Kangana without naming her.
