During the past few months, many Bollywood hunks and divas such as Sara Ali Khan, Disha Patani, Tiger Shroff, Janhvi Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt among others have gone to the Maldives for a holiday and have not been able to resist their vacation posts on social media.
While their fans went crazy over the pictures of their favorite stars at sea, many people verbally rebuked and criticized them relentlessly for showing off their privileged life when people across the country are fighting for their basic needs while battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
What Did Nawaz Say?
And now, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has lashed out at celebs for having no shame while sharing their exotic pictures.
“These celebrities posted holiday photos at a time when the world is struggling under a very difficult economy. … Logon ke pass khana nahin hai aur aap paise phenk rahe ho. Kuch toh sharm karo,” Nawazuddin told Bollywood Hungama in an interview. .
He further said, “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.”
He added that he is currently in his hometown of Budhana and his family says it is his Maldives while rejecting the idea of spending time on holiday islands.
Earlier, Amit Sadh criticized the celebs saying ‘the privileged lot should be more sensitive’ at such moments, and not impose their previlige in the eyes of the people. ‘In a recent post, let fans know you’re leaving social media forever. In a long book, the actor said that in these difficult times of the epidemic, he does not feel good about throwing people into trivial matters.
