The Wall Project – Vandalised

Just this morning, I was praising and admiring the efforts of all those who toiled to make Parel-to-Mahim Wall Project a great success on 25th October.

Sad, I could not be a part of it. But right now, what enrages me over the brim is “The Walls have been vandalised”, with the beautiful paintings cruelly covered with posters of our Bollywood Films.

We all love bollywood flicks, and they have every right to advertise whats coming up, but NOT by being a heartless spoilsport.

BMC, who supported this project is the same body that charges the producers to stick posters around too.Now I wonder, what would their step be (Or are they even concerned? I DOUBT!)

Comment down what do you think.!!!

  17. These posters should be ripped off!!
    If some nonsensical people can get together and ban a movie from being released just because it shows our city being addressed by it’s former name, this surely calls for something too!!!
    The BMC has helped us, it should take some action now!
    Let’s all get together on Sunday and rip these off the wall !

  20. This is shamful. These people need to be taught lesson strictly. The authority need to protect this from onwards.
