The Commonwealth Games, which are under fire from all quarters, today were on Bollywood radar too with realistic film maker Madhur Bhandarkar comparing the Games with a dark comedy.
"I think a dark comedy film titled GAMES is being played in CWG where bridge is collapsing, ceiling coming down," Bhandarkar tweeted.
Actor Arjun Rampal, tweeted, Rs 70,000 crore spent on CWG, Sensex shoots past 20K but poverty line in India stays constant. Is this a democracy or just plain Hypocrisy?
While actress Shilpa Shetty feels this was a great opportunity to make our country proud but unfortunately CWG has not brought us the pride and honor we though it would.
In a major embarrassment for organisers of the Commonwealth Games, an under-construction foot over bridge collapsed yesterday outside the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, the main venue of the Commonwealth Games.
On this Shilpa tweeted, news that things are falling apart a week before the Games begin and how athletes pulling out due to health and safety concerns…just makes me cringe.
Arjun tweeted, the explanation for the overhead bridge given is that it wasn't meant for officials or sportsmen but for the common man...Unbelievable. Kalmadi and the whole gang need to explain this is just sad as this is not my India.
The lack of hygiene and the overall state of the Games Village also drew flak as New Zealand and Scotland expressed shock at the unsafe and unfit accommodation.
On similar lines, veteran singer Asha Bhosale tweeted, CWG construction dirt being dusted under the carpet or into the bin?
CWG will also become recipient of great Indian phrase, Sab Chalta Hai, Chalne Do. Aage Badho Bhai. Idhar Sochne Ka Time Nahi Hai ("Everything will be fine. Keep moving as there is not time to think)," Asha tweeted.
Now, Bollywood Brickbats for CWG
