Mumbai, Jul 14: The Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan lambasted and thrashed the media for its breathless coverage over the Mumbai blast tragedies.

“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.

“Minutes before we were all set to leave for the function, the news started trickling in on the blasts in Mumbai and we stopped in our tracks too shocked and dismayed at what had happened yet again in this beautiful city of ours," he wrote. “The first reaction of course was for the safety of people, but as time passed by the horror of those killed and injured became prime."
