Soon after casting her vote, Zoya Akhtar spoke out against the Shivaji Statue issue. "Splurging on monuments like the Shivaji memorial shows the administration's misplaced priorities," she said. "There is a dire need to develop civic infrastructure instead", she added.

As the country's richest civic body - Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) - votes today along with nine other municipal corporations in Maharashtra, the stakes are high for the BJP and Shiv Sena.

There are also celebs who may not vote this year like Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Anupam Kher, Rishi Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Kumar as they are either out of country or shooting out of town.
