Bollywood mainstream actors like Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar rao, Taapsee Pannu, Parineeti Chopra are coming to forefront and voicing their opinions on the recent Jamia breakdown. Actor and host Sushant Singh was also participating in the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act and now in an unlikely news, the actor announced that his stint with 'Savdhaan India' has ended, giving subtle hints that his posts might have irked the sentiments of the showmakkers.
The actor, who has been part of the show as its host since 2011, shared the news on Twitter. Sushant, however, said it was a "small price" to pay for speaking out. "And, my stint with Savdhaan India has ended," Sushant wrote.
And, my stint with Savdhaan India has ended.— à¤¸à¥Âà¤¶à¤¾à¤‚à¤¤ à¤¸à¤¿à¤‚à¤¹ sushant singh Ø³ÙˆØ´Ø§Ù†Øª Ø³Ù†Ú¯Ú¾ (@sushant_says) December 16, 2019
Commenting on his post, a user wondered whether it was the "price" he paid for "speaking the truth".
To this, the actor said, "A very small price my friend. Otherwise how will you face Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru?"
Sushant was alluding to his role in Rajkumar Santoshi's 2002 film "The Legend of Bhagat Singh" in which he had portrayed freedom fighter Sukhdev opposite Ajay Devgn's Bhagat Singh and D'Santosh's Rajguru.
Student and professionals organised a protest at Mumbai University to take a stand against the Delhi Police action against students and also against CAA. Singh was among the few celebrities who turned out at the protest and openly expressed his views on the ongoing issue. The actor had also condemned the police crackdown on the students of Jamia Millia university. Jamia turned into a battlefield on Sunday as police entered the campus and used force to quell student protests against the Act.
The channel airing 'Savdhaan India is yet to respond to the news of Sushant's exit.
According to the amended act, members of Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain, Parsi and Christian communities, who had come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan till December 31, 2014, and were facing religious persecution, will not be treated as illegal immigrants but given Indian citizenship.
