Bollywood entertainer Alia Bhatt on Friday shared an image of Indian contingent from 2012 London Summer Olympics as that of Tokyo 2020 Games.
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.
