India has been dealing with the second wave of the novel Coronavirus and people have been succumbing to it mostly because of the lack of basic medical facilities. 

People on social media have been calling out the authorities as they are helpless and can’t save their own loved ones who are infected with the virus.

Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Samir Soni took to Instagram to bash those who have been criticizing the country amid COVID-19.

“Straight from my heart!!!,” Samir wrote, “Fed-up of this worldwide India bashing and some Indians actually taking pleasure in it. I love my country and stand by it, through thick and thin. And shame on all you ‘myseryporn’ peddlers, you'll probably sell your own family for sake of ‘Headlines’ or ‘Breaking News’,” his Instagram post read.

After his Instagram post started to get traction, people started to slam him and reminded him of the ground reality. 

They also said that no one is bashing the country but instead calling out authorities who have failed to help many innocent lives.

A while back, Soni had taken a break from social media. 

“Good luck, you fine young people, it’s au revoir from Uncle Sam”. Along with the caption, he also shared a close-up picture of himself with a message that read, ‘The more Instagram posts I see, the more I feel like a dinosaur on the verge of extinction,” his post read.

Talking about the social media pressure on oneself, he told HT, “There’s a need to continuously showcase your life out there — everyone’s exercising, dancing, taking up challenges. It makes one believe one is so happy, lovely, and smiling all the time. I think it’s peer pressure, as one person is doing it and the next person follows. Initially, it was fun to watch but now it feels like there’s a competition, which can be harmful, as you start to question yourself.”

On the work front, he was most recently seen in Sanjay Gupta’s gangster drama Mumbai Saga. The film got a theatrical release last month but didn’t work well at the box office.

Meanwhile, amidst the devastating second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, India reported 3,92,488 fresh coronavirus cases and over 3,689 related deaths in the last 24 hours.
