At least 15 people were killed and 21 others wounded after a major fire broke out in a pub in the Kamala Mills Compound in the wee hours of Friday. The fire reportedly started from One Above, a rooftop restaurant-cum-pub, in The Kamala Trade House and quickly spread to another restaurant-cum-pub Mojo’s Bistro.
Bollywood celebs and TV actors are saddened by this unfortunate incident that took place last night. Now, Hema Malini blamed the ever increasing population for the tragedy.
“It’s not that the police aren’t doing their job. They do a great job. But the population is so high. When Bombay ends, another city should begin. But the city keeps extending,” Malini said in a statement.
She suggested an upper limit on how many people should be allowed to live in big cities. “Each city should have a certain limit on population. After that, they should not be allowed…let them go to another city, the next city,” she added.
Well, this statement of the actress drew sharp backlash on social media. Twitterati was miffed with Hema Malini’s comments.
We apologise that we chose her as an MP.

Hema Malini should restrict her opinions to drinking water quality. Saves her from making a fool of herself.

I never thought Hema Malini would be this insensitive! First it was her statement when accident happened in Rajasthan and now this!
Arghhh and these people are our representative. Maybe we deserve this only as we are the one who vote for these kind of people. https://t.co/wgeHZPNcsJ

When a M P does not know what to speak and how to speak then it better to observe silence. It is said “silence is gold”.I am referring to a controversial statement of Hema Malini.
