The life of an actor is unpredictable. While some touch great heights, many hit rock bottom. This is the unbelievable story of Savi Sidhu, who once featured in films like Gulaal, Patiala House and Bewakoofiyan is now struggling to make ends meet and has taken up a job of a security guard.

Film companion shared a 5-minute long emotional video of the former actor, where he talks about his life as security guard and what led him to take this job. 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.”

Savi confessed that he grew love for acting from a very young age. Talking about what led him to take up the job of a security guard Savi revealed, “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.” He also stated that the toughest part of his life was when he lost his wife. He then got to know that his dad passed away followed by his mother’s death and finally his in-laws passed away too. Savi now does a 12 hour shift as a security guard in a housing society.

The former actor further added, “Mere pas bus ke paise nahi hain apne director producers ko milne ke aise halat hain. Ja ke film dekhna toh mere liye dream hai abhi. Bohot filme miss kar raha hoon... dekhne ka mann karta hai par meri financial position aisi hai.”
