Nawazuddin Siddiqui slams celebs holidaying during India’s lethal second wave
Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui has given an earful to all Bollywood celebrities going for vacations while the country battles its lethal second wave of COVID-19.
During an interview with Bollywood Hungama, the actor said celebrities holidaying at the beach while the country suffers “have no shame.”
“These entertainment celebrities posting vacation pictures at a time when the world is reeling under the worst recession,” he said.
“Logon ke paas khana nahin hai aur aap paise phenk rahe ho. Kuch toh sharam karo [People have no food to eat and you are throwing away your money. Have some shame],” he continued.
He went on to encourage the stars to “have a heart.”
“But 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.”
