This is not the first time when celebrities are sharing vacation photos. But, is this the right time to do it? A lot of actors have slammed celebrities for sharing vacation photos. And now, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui slammed celebrities for doing the same.
Recently, celebs who called out vacation photos of many actors as insensitive, include Amit Sadh, Shruti Haasan, and Shobhaa De, among others. Well, if one comes to think of it, this may not be the right time to do so after all. While Siddiqui slammed Bollywood celebrities for their posts, he also made a statement.
Nawazuddin 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.” If that is not enough, he also wrote how they don’t have a lot to talk about anyway. He said ‘they will run out of steam in two minutes’ if they were to talk about acting. He feels that actors must stop doing it in the name of humanity and not taunt those who are suffering.
Talking about the same, Shruti also spoke earlier mentioning how she just doesn’t feel right about it. She slammed Bollywood celebrities for flaunting their privileges. She said: Glad they had a great holiday, they deserved it. I did not personally feel it was a time to go maskless in a pool. It has been a tough time for everyone and for some people much more. I think gratitude and being thankful for privileges is what is most important to know versus throwing your privileges in people’s faces.
Here are posts from Shobhaa and Amit as they also held celebrities accountable for flaunting their privileges:
Nawaz is currently in his hometown Budhana with his family. In fact, slamming celebrities once again, he mentioned how that is his Maldives.
While we understand the sentiment behind taking vacations, as public figures, they do have a responsibility. While there’s so much they can do, they choose not to. Slamming celebrities for vacationing may seem a little over the top! However, it is the flaunting of their privileges on social media that is the real problem!
