Mumbai: The Common Wealth Games fiasco has taken the nation by storm. People from all walks of life are voicing their concern over the management mess that CWG has been enmeshed for quite some time now. However, Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan has a different stand. One of the biggest actors of India, SRK has defended the attempts made by the Common Wealth Games Committee on the microblogging site Twitter.
Just days after the actor had tweeted about how religious fanaticism is unreasonable, he posted , "i hope we indians realize how difficult it is to build stadiums & respect & so easy to break monuments & disrespect each others beliefs".
Shah Rukh is not the first celebrity to come forward and express his opinion on the Games, though others have not been as charitable as him.
Recently, Shilpa Shetty tweeted "News that things are falling apart a week before the games begin and how! Athletes are pulling out due to health and safety concerns...just makes me cringe. This could have been a great opportunity to make our country proud. Unfortunately CWG hasn`t brought us the pride and honour we thought it would."
Other Bollywood celebs, like Kunal Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Mandira Bedi and Arjun Rampal, have lashed out at the government for its poor organistaion for the sporting event on Twitter as well.
Well, it remains to be seen now how many actors follow Shah Rukh’s way in projecting CWG in a positive light.
