New Delhi: Heart-warming stories of how rained out Mumbaikars helped each other have emerged from the last two days - comedian Daniel Fernandes' experience, posted on Twitter, is not among them. In his tweets, Mr Fernandes alleged that actor Sanjay Dutt's manager threatened to beat him up for asking if he could park his flooded car on an elevated area of his building - the manager works out of an office in the same building. "All I asked was to let my car stay there till the water recedes," Daniel Fernandes tweeted. He also claimed that Sanjay Dutt's manager blocked one of the entrances into the building for his own use.

Comments on Mr Fernandes' thread sympathised with him but were also quick to point out that Sanjay Dutt's manager ought not to be conflated with the actor himself and that Mr Dutt, known for his generosity and warmth, would not have acted that way.

Several celebrities also posted about being stuck in the overflowing streets, among them actor Madhavan whose car broke down. Sanjay Dutt appeared to have been safely home - at least, he appears to have no distressing experience to reveal.

Sanjay Dutt's look from new film The Good Maharaja has been unveiled today. The 58-year-old actor will be seen soon in the film Bhoomi, his first since completing a five-year jail term in February 2016.
