Everyone is pointing fingers at the organisers of the Commonwealth Games 2010, Delhi, following the collapse of a pedestrian bridge and a false ceiling at the weightlifting venue. Bollywood personalities too have taken to Twitter to express their concern and dissatisfaction.

Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted, “I think a dark comedy film titled 'Games" is being played in CWG where bridge is collapsing, ceiling coming down..." Ranvir Shorey wrote, “Waiting for something to collapse on one of the government officials who're telling us everything is alright at the CWG. After the bridge, a ceiling has collapsed...Dogs...poop...falling buildings... I'm already enjoying the CWG."

Legendary singer Asha Bhosle is disturbed by the latest happening at the Games venue. “CWG will also become recipient of the great Indian phrase: Sab Chalta Hai, Chalne Do. Aage Badho Bhai. Idhar Sochne Ka Time Nahi Hai (Anything will do, it's ok. Just move on brother. Here we don't have time to think)", she tweeted. Shekhar Kapur also tweeted, “With CWG fiasco, the people of India must confront corruption at such a huge, shameless and arrogant way. Is anyone taking responsibility?"

Some actors think that CWG is turning into a matter of shame rather then pride for the country. Shilpa Shetty tweeted, “Husband is abroad. He was proud to be an Indian till he saw the international news channels condemning India for its CWG crisis. Disgraceful! News is that things are falling apart a week before the Games begin and how! 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 bring. Wake up India!"

Kunal Kapoor also tweeted, “CWG...What was supposed to b the nation's pride has turned out be its shame! Actually, it"s silly to expect pride when we are ruled by corrupt, shameless politicos. National pride is the last thing on their minds." Arjun Rampal wrote, “70,000 crores spent on CWG, Sensex shoots past 20K, but the poverty line in India stays constant. Is this a democracy or just plain Hypocrisy?"
