'Mumbai meri Jaan,' say Sonu Sood, Swara Bhasker, Riteish Deshmukh and other Bollywood celebs after Kangana Ranaut tweets 'Mumbai feels like POK'


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."

Sonu Sood tweeted, " .. " 

Renuka Shahane wrote, "Dear @KanganaTeam Mumbai is the city where your dream of becoming a Bollywood star has been fulfilled, one would expect you to have some respect for this wonderful city. It's appalling how you compared Mumbai with POK! " 

Swara Bhasker wrote, "As an outsider, an independent working woman & resident of #Mumbai for the past decade. Just want to say that Bombay is one of easiest & safest cities to live & work in. Thank you @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice for your relentless efforts & service to keep #AamchiMumbai safe." 

Kubbra Sait wrote, "I was 17, I wanted to run away to Mumbai. At 27, I chose to make it home. At 37, I still live here. I love Mumbai. This is MY HOME as it is to millions #ILoveMumbai"

Urmila Matondkar tweeted, "Maharashtra is cultural n intellectual face of India..land of Great Shivaji maharaj. Mumbai has fed millions of Indians n given them Name Fame n Glory.Only ungrateful can compare it with POK..Shocked n disgusted #EnoughIsEnough # #mumbaimerijaan #"

"Mumbai Hindustan hai," Riteish Deshmukh wrote in Hindi.


Abhimanyu Dassani tweeted, "Mumbai Meri Jaan."

Shruti Seth wrote, "Being a Bombay child I've always felt connected to the sea. In the past 5 months I had forgotten how therapeutic it is being close to the water. Such a sense of abundance. It must be the tides that draw people into this magical city & keep them from leaving. Sigh! I love Mumbai.

Maanvi Gagroo posted, "City of choice. No place I'd rather be. I love Mumbai. #gratitude #bombae #MumbaiMeriJaan."


Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who has had her own share of arguments with Kangana in the past, posted an indirect tweet that read, "“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it. “ George Bernard Shaw" 


Kangana did not stop there. The actress took to her Twitter account and stated that she would be arriving in Mumbai on the 9th of September and dared anyone to stop her. "I see many people are threatening me to not come back to Mumbai so I have now decided to travel to Mumbai this coming week on 9th September, I will post the time when I land at the Mumbai airport, kisi ke baap mein himmat hai toh rok le (stop me if you can)," tweeted the actress.
