Amit Sadh says he was disgusted with people showing their privileged life on social media, which is that the reason why he decided to go offline and take a break.
Many Bollywood actors are dealing with new lockdown restrictions in Mumbai by sharing wistful posts on Instagram. Not Amit Sadh, who made an announcement on social media which may be described as woke in every sense. The actor, in an in depth note, wrote that he’s “going offline.”
“How can I talk about a project when my country is suffering? How can I be so shameless and selfish,” questions actor Amit Sadh, expressing his disbelief at people using social media to flaunt their privileged life, at a time when many people are suffering due to the intensifying Covid-19 crisis.
“I don’t care about myself right now because the life force of the world, especially in India, is at a halt. We’re suffering, so how can I talk about a project? We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and we need to understand that this is not a joke and take it seriously,” Sadh Wrote.
The actor is extremely upset with how the crisis is unfolding within the country, and the way some people are turning blind eye towards it. that’s the rationale why he decided to take a break from social media on April 7. “It has been troubling me. For me, this is not the best time to put my silly pictures and motivate. This is not criticism to anyone” the Kai Po Che actor shares.
Right now, work is additionally not happening at same pace, as most of the people are battling their own problems. “Somebody has Covid, somebody doesn’t have salary, somebody doesn’t have work, somebody’s parents are sick,” points Sadh, and continues, “How will my quote or my reel or my dancing move or my comedy will inspire them? That is the reason why I made the decision that I’m going to go off from posting about my life and how amazing I am and how everything is so perfect.”
The actor, who has recently come from Dubai after getting his knee treated, feels it’s not the proper time to “show how privileged we are and rub it on people who’re struggling”. He explains, “Agar hum 10 din apne post nahi dalenge, aur gym ki photo nahi dikhayenge, ya nahi dikhayenge ke hamari life kitni achi hai (toh kuch nahi hoga). If somebody thinks ke unki photo dalne se log inspire ho rahe hain, then they’re being foolish. I don’t want to be foolish.”
According to Sadh, people, at the present, are being very “insensitive” with the type of tone they’re adapting for his or her social media.
“They aren’t asking the people about their hardships, and just putting pictures, or I did this which, or bought that, or this is often my next movie. i’m a neighborhood of it too. i’m disgusted with myself too, and that’s why i ended it,” he says.
While the country is “suffering”, the actor realised that he should just call up some people and check on them. “In abroad, nobody’s telling how they celebrated their birthday, or attended which party. Brad Pitt ka bhi birthday tha, usne toh nahi dhikhaya ke dekho meine kitne logon ke saath party ki,” he compares.
Here, Sadh points out that he’s not against living, or doesn’t believe that having privilege may be a sin. “But this is often not the time to flaunt the privileges. In India, I’m just a touch upset with how rich people are behaving as if COVID hua hi nahi hai, and humare liye covid hua hi nahi hai. that’s not an honest and really insensitive message,” points out Sadh.
Before concluding, the actor asserts that one must dig in and see how they will be relevant to our country and to our society. “Dawai lekar, doctor ko phone karke ya kisse se baat karke. I don’t skills we are being relevant by showing our privileged survive Instagram,” he ends.
