Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan had surprised everyone after announcing his decision to leave social media a day after his birthday last month.
The most recent person to join the ‘quit social media’ bandwagon is Breathe actor Amit Sadh!
He announced his decision to go offline with a hard-hitting post about how he doesn’t feel it’s right to spam trivial pictures, posts and reels given the tense situation of the pandemic.
“I am going offline. 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 post and reels of gym sessions, the silly things 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 the things to get better,” he wrote.
He also urged people to help the less fortunate and felt that we should acknowledge the seriousness of the scenario instead of just pretending everything is okay.
“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 concluded his post by assuring his fans that he isn’t abandoning them.
“When a need for conversation arises, reach out to me on my dm like you all usually do. I am here but will not be posting quotes, pictures, or reels. I personally feel this is not the time for me to show my privileged life,” he wrote.
