Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan has taken a dig over the way media covers tragedies like the latest Mumbai serial blasts.

“Yet again our city of Mumbai has been made the target of a brutal attack. Once again there shall be concerned voices raised by those in authority. Once again Mumbai will show its resilience and get back to work as rapidly as possible. Once again TV channels shall give exclusive reports from the site of the action,claiming,how they were the first to bring this tragedy to your doorstep,” Bachchan blogged.

“At the end of the day,even when you are fighting an adversary the desire,by certain forces to capitalise on the situation does not change. And it does leave a very bad taste in the mouth,” said the actor.

The 68-year-old also said,“Once again the city shall limp back to normalcy and in a few months the incident will be forgotten. Fresh and more inventive topics shall rule the roost.”
