Actor Siddharth is a man with a spine. The Rang De Basanti star is not someone who hesitates from telling the truth. He calls a spade a spade irrespective of whosoever is in power. Like millions on social media, the actor has been critical of the ruling party of the nation, especially in the manner in which they dealt with the second wave of the pandemic. Siddharth also did not mince words in calling out the mismanagement of the government. It seems he was harassed by political goons for the same. He has tweeted, "My phone number was leaked by members of TN BJP and @BJPtnITcell...Over 500 calls of abuse, rape and death threats to me & family for over 24 hrs. All numbers recorded (with BJP links and DPs) and handing over to Police. I will not shut up. Keep trying."
Actress Aditi Rao Hydari has come out in his support. She has said that he is a brave man. Not only Aditi, fans also supported the fan in large numbers. Some even compared him to the South American revolutionary, Che Guevara. Check out the tweets in his support...
Many people are surprised that no one from Bollywood's top brass has called out the government for this apocalyptic failure in the second wave. But Siddharth has made it clear he does not have any political ambitions. He said, "I don’t have any aspirations to be a politician. People who talk like me cannot be in politics. For that, you have to be much more diplomatic and know how to say the right thing at the right time. I know how to say the truth and I say it. I don’t need to talk ill about my country to get something out of it. If I don’t speak out, I’d feel guilty."
