Mumbai is experiencing unusually cold weather with the mercury plummeting to the season's lowest on Monday. At 13.2 degrees Celsius, the residents of the city shivered, preferring to remain inside their homes. Mumbai, incidentally, also witnessed rainfall over the weekend. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted the temperature to dip further in the coming days. While being home, Mumbaikars did not miss the opportunity to roast the internet with fun-loving memes about the weather as they wrapped themselves in winter clothing and sipped their hot beverages.
Among those hit by the cold weather was Shah Rukh Khan's production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. It shared several behind-the-scenes images of Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Rohit Shetty and Farah Khan shivering on the sets of Dilwale. Red Chillies Entertainment captioned the post, “Sweaters ki keemat tum kya jaano Delhi walon (Delhi residents, you would never be able to value sweaters). Yours sincerely, A Frozen Mumbaikar.” Usually, people refer to Delhi's harsh winter as the standard for referring to cold weather.
Others dug their heels deep into the “snow” to air their views. Sharing a GIF with the Game of Thrones phrase, “Winter is coming”, one user asked, “Should we declare official winter season for 2-3 days in Mumbai now?”
Another shared an image of two homes surrounded by snow.
A third user shared another GIF of a kid removing his hat as a gesture of respect to the chill.
