Actor Amit Sadh temporarily goes off social media, amid the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in India, and Samir Soni has bid adieu to Instagram.
OTT star Amit Sadh quits social media with an eye-opening post. Actor says he is temporarily going off social media amid the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in India.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the Breathe star said that his posts, Reels videos and the ‘silly things’ he does on social media will ‘not heal or entertain anyone’.
The post started with, “I AM GOING OFFLINE.” It continued, “The recent events have made me reflect on whether I should be posting my pictures and reels. Especially when my city Mumbai and the entire state is under strict COVID restrictions, the whole country is going through a difficult time. I believe my posts and reels of the gym sessions, the silly things that I do will not heal or entertain anyone. This is not a criticism to anyone. I personally feel the best way to be sensitive about the situation is to pray and hope for things to get better.”
The actor also advised everyone to help the less fortunate, especially the daily wage workers, whose income resources were will and is affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Reach out to people who make very few salaries, who have two 0s or three 0's in their salary, help the daily wage earners because they suffer the most. Life must go on even though I feel burdened. I am disheartened when we do not acknowledge the seriousness and do not address it. We cannot behave that everything is okay; this is a pandemic. I will continue to do what is expected of me, wear a mask, maintain a social distance of 6 feet, step out when necessary, follow protocols and rules. I am going to be vigilant, and I urge you all to do the same. I hope things get better to a point where I can start being goofy and silly again,” he wrote.
On the other hand, Samir Soni also quits the platform, calls himself 'a dinosaur on the verge of extinction'. His last post on Instagram read as, “Good luck, you fine young people, it’s au revoir from Uncle Sam”.
