The incessant rains in Mumbai have created a chaotic situation in the city, and social media is flooded with images and videos showing the same. Amidst this, a particular video - involving a Bolero and a Jaguar - grabbed attention of netizens and sparked hilarious reactions too. People dropped all sorts of comments on the clip, including business tycoon Anand Mahindra.

The clip, which is now being shared by many across different social media platforms, shows the Jaguar stuck in a waterlogged street in Mumbai. A few seconds into the clip, the Mahindra Bolero whizzes past the luxury car - that too quite comfortably.

Here’s the video that is creating a stir among people:

While most dropped hilarious reactions, some decided to start a debate about which car is better – Bolero or Jaguar.

“It’s a game of driving skills and dare,” wrote a YouTube user. “Notice how the wave created by bolero moved Jaquar a bit,” wrote another. “Jaguar stuck because it’s automatic... And bolero passes because it’s manual transmission. Manual is always powerful than automatic. It’s proved,” commented a third. “Be cool DUDE! It’s A Bolero Camper,” wrote a forth YouTube user.

There were also some who tagged industrialist Anand Mahindra to bring the video to his attention. And, it worked.

The industrialist, on quite a humble note, tweeted “We won’t brag over this. It’s an unfair contest. The Bolero’s meant to negotiate such landscapes (seascapes?). But now you know why the Bolero’s my favourite vehicle to drive.”

Netizens reacted to Anand Mahindra’s response too. Here’s what they wrote:
