Nawazuddin Siddiqui blasts celebrities for posting vacation pictures
Thackeray actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui blasts celebrities for being insensitive and positing their luxurious vacation pictures when the country is struggling with oxygen shortage in the Covid-19 emergency.
The Kick actor also said since celebrities having nothing worthwhile to talk and post about, they choose to flaunt their trips abroad as a way to stay in the news.
“What else will they talk about? Acting? They will run out of steam in two minutes. In logon ne Maldives ko tamasha 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,” said Nawazudding.
When asked whether he would go on a vacay to the Maldives, Nawaz said, “No way. I am in my home town Budhana with my family. That’s my Maldives.”

Earlier, actor Shruti Haasan also gave a similar statement on these vacation pictures and said, “I think gratitude and being thankful for your privilege is what is most important now versus throwing your privilege on people’s faces.”
Several celebrities such as Sara Ali Khan, Varun Dhavan, Shraddha Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Disha Patani, Tiger Shroff, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt amongst others headed to the Maldives for vacation and received massive flak from fans online for posting pictures amid the pandemic.
It is shocking that even the second wave of COVID-19 didn’t stop them from going on a vacation.
Now, Maldives’ Ministry of Tourism on Sunday announced it has suspended tourists travelling from India from April 27.
“With effect from 27 April @HPA_mv suspends tourists travelling from #India to #Maldives from staying at tourist facilities in inhabited islands. We thank you for the support in our endeavour to make tourism safest possible with minimum inconvenience,” they tweeted.
