“It is very sad what has happened in Mumbai. The authorities are irresponsible in giving permissions to such restaurants. So many restrictions are put when we build our bungalows. How can they give permissions to restaurants just like that,” the veteran actress questioned.
Blaming the influx of migrants from various parts of the country to the Metropolis for work, Hema said, “Such incidents are recurring because of huge population in Mumbai. Some restriction should be there on growing population.”
“Every city should not accommodate people after certain numbers then they should move to another city,” she added.
Hema praised the policemen in the city by saying they are doing a great job.
