Looks like electricity bills have become a new topic of satire in Bollywood. After actress Taapsee Pannu complained about the incorrect amount charged to her. Now, it’s Arshad Warsi who have come out and spoken about the same issue, but with a humorous take on it.
It’s a hidden fact that Arshad likes to paint, apart from being an actor and he’s really good at this too. In his latest interview, the Munnabhai actor spoke about how painting is therapeutic for him despite being a time-consuming process. And the actor has asked people to buy his works so that he can pay his electric bill.
Taking to his Twitter account, he wrote- “People please buy my paintings, I need to pay my Adani electric bill, kidneys am keeping for the next bill.” (sic) however, this is not the first time Warsi complained about it. A few days back, when Huma Qureshi also did the same, Warsi had this to tweet, have a look right here:
This is averaging the bill amount which is highway robbery. Considering the situation we should be paying the exact bill amount that we paid last year during the same months. https://t.co/dR6So30QHg
