Mumbai Rains: Pooja Bhatt, Tiger Shroff, Swara Bhaskar and others lash out at the lack of infrastructure

For the past two days, the city of Mumbai has been seeing massive rainfall across varied locations. While more than half the city was drowned in water, it became a menace for residents who were stranded on roads, in cars, offices and sometimes even their own homes. Many celebrities, who faced tough times travelling, have taken a dig at the condition.

Mumbai Rains: Pooja Bhatt, Tiger Shroff, Swara Bhaskar and others lash out at the lack of infrastructure

From Memes to posts to making fun of the current infrastructure of Mumbai, many celebrities took to Twitter to vent out their feelings. One amongst them is Pooja Bhatt. The actress-filmmaker decided to speak up against the potholes and the lowly condition of roads that was responsible for creating havoc after the rains lashed out in Mumbai for approximately two days continuously. The actress went on to share many posts questioning BMC [Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation] about the situation in varied places in the city. Not just that, she also posted pictures from a certain suburban studio in Bandra [suburban Mumbai] on her Twitter handle showcasing the condition of the roads there!

Why exactly is the road outside Mehboob studios in Bandra (w) still in this pathetic condition,with debris and garbage piled up yet again? Will the BMC & people responsible kindly explain and take action? @MNCDFbombay the city has fallen apart. pic.twitter.com/NOMmIKDbIk

Followed by that, Pooja continued to bash the government for such poor infrastructure facilities in a series of tweets. Here’s a glimpse:

Blacklisting is not enough. That’s mere lip service. Navigating the streets of Mumbai is akin to navigating HELL. This has to stop. The BMC must take charge or step down. Enough is enough. https://t.co/arGERwpbTI

All the authorities in Mumbai do is send us messages asking us to stay home. How about fixing the roads & providing us the infrastructure we pay for.The BMC gets richer each year and more apathetic. While Mumbai drowns. When will this stop @MNCDFbombay @RoadsOfMumbai

Besides her, many other Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to share memes and opinions blaming Mumbai’s infrastructure for the destruction the city faced last evening. Some other celebs appreciated the spirit of Mumbai citizens who decided to travel to work despite the calamity and some shared stay-safe messages. Here’s a list of tweets we collected from celebs:

Have you considered that disaster-prevention might be a better plan!?? This is insane, repetitive and completely reflects the arrogance and corruption that Mumbai has to deal with. What’s changed since #July2005 when 1094 people died in M’tra?https://t.co/2K8t1dLYyq

Mumbai road repair. Basically hiring a cheap make up artist to cover up what a dermatologist can fix.

In case the Met is thinking of a name for the impending #cyclone hitting #Mumbai, i suggest “Achche Din”.
