Alia Bhatt’s Instagram post

Taking to Instagram, Bhatt tweeted an image opening ceremony of London Olympics with hashtag of Tokyo 2021. An Indian woman, Madhura Honey, had gatecrashed the Indian contingent back then and walked alongside the athletes during the opening ceremony. She could be seen wearing the red jacket and blue jeans in the image shared by Bhatt.

Bhatt, daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and his wife and former actress Soni Razdan, however, was mocked at for sharing wrong image of the wrong Indian contingent of athletes.

Netizens also pointed out that one of the athletes present in the contingent is wrestler Sushil Kumar, who is currently lodged in jail over murder charges.

Some even resorted to self deprecating humour.

During such depressing times, seems like Alia Bhatt offered some entertainment to netizens.

Meanwhile, Team India has opened its tally on day one of Olympics with Mirabai Chanu won the silver medal in the 49kg category of weightlifting.
