Sushant Singh slams a troll alleging him of doing a drama about being thrown out of ‘Savdhaan India’
Sushant Singh was hosting ‘Savdhaan India’ since 2012 but reports suggest that he is sacked by the channel for his view against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). He took to his Twitter handle and said, “And, my stint with Savdhaan India has ended.” Post this it was speculated that he was terminated because of his participation in protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
In an interview with PTI, the actor said, “Contractually, it has to be a month’s notice but to shoot during that time or not is up to them. I don’t want to link both these things. I went for the protest and then in the night, I got the message that this will be my last day of shoot. Maybe it is a coincidence, maybe this was planned. I don’t want to speculate.”
Now, Sushant Singh has slammed a netizen for calling him a ‘liar’ over his exit from ‘Savdhaan India’. A Twitter user posted a screenshot of a news portal’s report from December 5 (which is 10 days before Sushant confirmed his exit from ‘Savdhaan India’). The user wrote, “Sushant Singh knew his contract was ending and new format of ‘Savdhan India’ will have cops narrating the story. So he did this Drama to victim play as if he was sacked because he spoke against NRC. Here’s the news from December 5, much before CAB passed.” The actor gave a befitting reply to the user.
He said that the official statement given by the channel is completely untrue, and he has all the proofs. Also, he wrote that he will be filing a complaint with Cine And TV Artistes’ Association and International Federation of Actors over the issue.

I wish you had bothered to check with me first @iAnkurSingh , before calling me a liar. The official statement given by @StarBharat is completely untrue, and I have all the proofs. This is an attempt to malign me. Filing a complaint with @CintaaOfficial and @FIA_actors https://t.co/VZ9tZTRaef

For the unversed, Star Bharat-the channel where the show is aired, has issued a statement and said that Sushant’s ongoing contract ends on January 15, 2020, and the termination has nothing to do with his political views. Sushant, on the other hand, said he should have been given a month’s notice.
