Bollywood celebrities have always stood up for the right cause, but at times many of them can be playing the hypocrisy game and we never know . Now, coming to the point, the latest controversy which has gone viral on the web is none other than the metro car shed in Aarey. With commoners taking every efforts to eliminate the upcoming massacre, it came as quite a shocker when Amitabh Bachchan tweeted in favour of the same. For the uninitiated, Big B via his tweet expressed how metro was a faster, convenient and an efficient mode of transport. And as expected, the megastar got slammed right, left and centre for supporting the chopping off the tress at Aarey. Earlier, even Bollywood’s Khiladi Akshay Kumar had tweeted in favour of the burning Amazon Jungle, but, on the other hand, he has been mum about the metro car shed topic. Infact, Kumar in a cryptic way also supported Senior Bachchan and tweeted a video of expressing all things good about his latest metro ride.

If you are not aware of the controversy, then MMRCL has proposed to clear  2,646 trees from the forest area in the Aarey colony, so that it can build a rail shed for its Metro III project. The environmentalists are against it, because such a move could harm the flora and fauna of the city and are staging protests outside the MMRCL office. They have also claimed that felling of these trees would only increase the pollution levels in the city, something which Mumbai has been dealing from many years. Aarey Deforestation Row: Supreme Court Rejects Plea Seeking Alternative Land For Metro Car Shed
