Sushant Singh, most famously known for being the presenter of the show Savdhaan India for years, recently took to his social media and shared that his stint with the show has finally come to an end. His tweet read, “And, my stint with Savdhaan India has ended.” While no specific reason was given, Netizens linked his exit from the show to the support he extended to the protestors of CAA, as he got sacked the same day he protested against CAA. A channel then released an official statement which said that the next format of Savdhaan India did not require a presenter, and hence a new contract was not signed. The channel also said that they had no political views, nor does it seek to influence the political views of its contracted talent. Now, Sushant Singh has claimed that the official statement given by the channel is untrue.
Sushant Singh revealed this in his latest tweet. A Twitter user claimed that Sushant Singh knew his contract was coming to an end and he did this drama to play the victim card. The tweet read, “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. Shame on @sushant_says.” Sushant Singh replied to this tweet claiming that the channel’s statement is false and that he is filing a complaint with Cine & TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) and Federation of Actors (FIA).
