While the country is fighting one of its hardest battle with the Covid-19 virus, many celebrities have taken the time off to relax and vacation in Maldives. Recently, Ranbir Kapoor and his girlfriend, Alia Bhatt flew off to the island for some quality time. Netizens have expressed their anger towards the actors posting pictures from their vacation, and now Nawazuddin Siddiqui, too, has slammed the celebrities for doing the same.
Talking to SpotboyE, 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 (People don’t have food and you are wasting money, have some shame).”
He went on to add, “What else will they 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.” The actor seemed pretty upset with the actors vacationing in Maldives and posting pictures of it.
The actor revealed that he has no plans to go for a vacation anywhere. He is spending his time in his hometown, Budhana with his family, and would like to keep it that way. “That’s my Maldives,” he said.
Workwise, Nawazuddin Siddiqui was last seen in Sudhir Mishra’s Serious Men. The film was an adaptation of Manu Joseph’s book of the same name, and the actor received a lot of appreciation for his role. He will next be seen in Jogira Sara Ra Ra. The actor also has Raat Akeli Hai and Bole Chudiyan in the pipeline.
