Bollywood celebrities on Tuesday took to their social networking accounts to express their anguish over the problems faced by Mumbaikars and severely criticised the government over the bridge collapse incident.

Actor and filmmaker Farhan Akhtar said it was a matter of shame. “Andheri bridge collapse is yet another reminder of how pathetic Mumbai’s infrastructure is. For a city that gives so much to the exchequer, we deserve better, if not best. #shame,” he tweeted.

Actress Esha Gupta also took Twitter to express her concern with infrastructure in the city: “Love how flyovers n bridges keep falling in our country..can they stop making money from this n actually think of the people who can n do get hurt?? make a structure strong enough like you were paid for..govt needs to stop screwing lives.. #andheribridgecollapse”

In Facebook, presenter and actor Renuka Shahane wrote: “Matter closed! Get back to work Mumbai, while we get back to not working and filling our pockets with money. And dont you dare talk of corruption or black money. We are not corrupt. Didn't you hear? Black money is now declared as white money in our great nation! So don't complain! There is no corruption!!!”

Shraddha Kapoor also took to her Instagram account and shared a video story of the Andheri accident site.
