Actor Varun Dhawan did not have the best experience on social networks recently. After being criticized for posting a “deaf” self-promotional tweet, the actor was criticized on Instagram for displaying his “privilege” as the country spins under pressure to tackle the second wave of the coronavirus.
On Wednesday, the actor and his wife, Natasha Dalal, returned to Mumbai from Ziro, where he had filmed for his upcoming film, Bhediya. Reacting to a video of them at the airport asking paparazzi to follow social distance, one person commented on an Instagram post: “You went on vacation and gave the popes a chance to get caught, now you’re coming back and complaining . Stop showing your privilege when people in your country die. ”
Varun wrote back: “Well, your guess is wrong. I was filming my movie and not on vacation. And what do you mean, ‘I gave them a chance?’ How can you not give them a chance? I have people who have lost their lives properly. So please keep your assumptions to yourself.
Earlier this week, he also deleted a tweet containing a “common DP” to celebrate his birthday on Saturday, after several Twitter users suggested that it may not have been the most sensitive thing that to share it at this time. “Oh, Varun. I thought you were one of the sensitive ones,” wrote one person, to which Varun replied, “Well, it was to make someone happy who did the graphics and asked for it, but I think that this environment should not be used for this right now. “
Last year, Varun was among the first Bollywood stars to amplify the severity of the pandemic, when he hosted a live chat with his friend, actor Zoa Morani, who had been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the early stages of the pandemic.

Several people, such as author Shobhaa De, and actors Shruti Haasan and Amit Sadh criticized the stars for going on holiday and posting pictures on social media. Shobhaa’s post read: “It is the height of vulgarity to show those ridiculous images. Enjoy the Maldives from all points of view. You are blessed if you can get such a break in these gloomy times. But do everyone a favor … keep it private. “
