Bollywood reacts to petrol price hike with sarcasm and concern

Petrol hike perturbs B-Town

The steep rise in petrol price has left Bollywood celebrities like Gul Panag and Divya Dutta concerned about the plight of the country's common man, while megastar Amitabh Bachchan and actor Ronit Roy have mocked at the issue through jokes.

Petrol in Delhi will cost Rs.73.18 a litre, in Mumbai Rs.78.57 a litre, in Kolkata Rs.77.88 and in Chennai Rs.77.53 per litre. The celebrities took to Twitter to share their views on the Rs.7.5 price hike in fuel.

Here's what they had to say:

Amitabh Bachchan : Petrol up Rs.7.5: Pump attendant - 'Kitne ka daloon ?'! Mumbaikar - '2-4 rupye ka car ke upar spray kar de bhai, jalana hai!!

Boman Irani: Another petrol price hike!!! Thankfully the ticket prices of 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' will still cost the same.

Gul Panag: Petrol becomes more expensive, again. May be its time to improve public transportation and seriously develop alternate sources of energy.

Ashish Chowdhry: Just by the way, disgusted with the centre for hiking petrol prices the way they have leaving aside options which would hurt the 'aam aadmi' less. A numb move! Increase taxes on gold and silver, look into tax exemptions, focus on loose subsidies, build industry; huge options. Why hurt common people so bad?

Divya Dutta: Every one seems to be filling petrol! Rs.7.50 hike?? Can we all get back to bicycles please? It's getting worse!

Kunal Kapoor: Petrol is up to 78 rs per litre! Forget cars, banks need to come up with EMI schemes for petrol as well now!

Kabir Bedi: Oil Cos have losses of 145,000 Crore in last 4 years. Petrol price rise unavoidable UNLESS Govt reduces taxes. WILL THEY?
