India has reported highest number of daily new Covid-19 cases and deaths. A total of 3,46,786 Covid cases were recorded in the last 24 hours, and 2,624 deaths, the highest single-day deaths so far in the country, according to the health ministry’s reports on Saturday.
Maldives has been one of the most popular destination among celebs, and many actresses, like Janhvi Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Disha Patani had been posting their photos from the beach destination.
Calling out the celebrities and lashing out at them for their tone-deaf behaviour when the country is facing a severe health crisis, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui said in an interview to an entertainment portal that such stars should be ashamed of themselves.
“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. Perhaps going on holiday is not so wrong as showing off about it?” the actor told SpotboyE in an exclusive interview.
“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,” Nawazuddin added.
Currently, Nawazuddin is stationed at his hometown in Bhudana.
On a related note, a number of celebrities including Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Jhanvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Tiger Shroff, Disha Patani among others flew to the Maldives amid the rising cases of coronavirus in India.
