There are ample names on the list from B-town who came and rocked the screens, but then vanished. There were many examples of small city people making big in the film industry but there are some people also who lost their everything in the race of popularity.
‘Gulaal’, ‘Patiala House’, ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Bevakoofiyan’ actor Savi Sidhu’s story belong to the lot of later.
In a heartbreaking story, it has come to spotlight that actor Savi Sidhu is not being able to make ends meet. To keep up with bills and everyday expenses, Sidhu has now turned to a security guard.
Recently, Film Companion shared a video of the actor where he is sharing his experience and struggle of life. He was also asked why he has taken up the security guard job after doing some good films.
He started by saying, “Anurag Kashyap mile struggle karte karte toh mujhe Paanch mei liya, unki jo pehli film thi release nahi hui. Uske baad unhone mujhe Black Friday mei liya, one of the main characters that is Commissioner Samra ka role kiya maine then unke sath maine Gulaal bhi kari. Maine Yash Raj, Subhash ji ke sath, Nikhil Advani ke sath Patiala House kari.”
Talking about his ‘Acting Ka Keeda’, he further adds, “Since my brother got a job in Air India, it became easier for me to come to Mumbai. Fir jaise struggle hoti hai… maine shuri kari producers ko milna.”
Speaking about why things didn’t work out for him in Bollywood he said, “Kaam ki kabhi problem nahi hui. Mujhe hi chhodna pada ki mai nahi kar pa raha hoon. You know… it was like kya mere liye wait kar raha hai… yaha jaise logo ko kaam milta nahi aur mere pas itna kaam hai ki mai kaam nahi kar pa raha. Meri health problems badh rahi hain. Meri financial problems bhi badh gayi, health problems bhi badh gayi toh kaam khatam ho gaya.”
The former actor now does 12 hours shift as a security guard in a housing society but hasn’t lost hope
