The Maldives seems to have become the favorite destination of various celebrities these days. From Alia Bhatt to Disha Patani, and Janhvi Kapoor, actors are flying to the destination and posting their pictures from there while the nation is succumbing to the coronavirus crisis. This seems to have irked actors such as Annu Kapoor and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who slam such behavior and call it insensitive.
Annu Kapoor took to his Twitter handle and wrote, "I humbly appeal to rich and famous from all walks of life and media not to post their pictures vacationing at exotic locations while the most of the world suffers from pandemic कि सी को जला के मज़लूमों की बद्दआु क्यों लेना? (Why to take the curse of those who are suffering),” he wrote
Likewise, Nawazuddin Siddiqui said, "But what else will they(celebrities) talk about? Acting? They will run out of steam in two minutes. In logon ne, Maldives ko tamasha bana rakha hai (They have made a joke out of this). 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.`` 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,” he said.
