Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui lashes out at the Bollywood celebs who are vacationing in the Maldives amid India facing the worst phase of the pandemic.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, “These entertainment celebrities posting vacation pictures at a time when the world is reeling under the worst recession. …Logon ke pass khana nahin hai aur aap paise phenk rahe ho. Kuch toh sharm karo.”
“But what else will they (celebs) talk about? Acting? They will run out of steam in two minutes. In logon ne Maldives ko tamasaha bana rakha hai. I don’t know what their arrangement is with the tourism industry. But for the sake of humanity, please keep these vacations to yourself. There is suffering everywhere. The cases of Covid are multiplying. Have a heart. Please don’t taunt those who are suffering. As a community, we entertainers in India need to grow up,” Nawazuddin said while talking to a news outlet.
When questioned whether he would go on a vacay to the Maldives, he said, “No way. I am in my home town Budhana with my family. That’s my Maldives.”
On daily basis, the country is reporting a record number of COVID-19 related fatalities and coronavirus cases but the Bollywood celebs seem to be least bothered by the ground realities.
The comments from The Sacred Games star comes as a number of B-town celebrities including Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Jhanvi Kapoor, Tiger Shroff, Disha Patani, and many others flew to the Maldives amid the rising cases of coronavirus in India.
