Bollywood actor Savi Sidhu who is known for his work in the films Gulaal, Patiala House and Bevakoofiyan has now turned to a security guard to earn bread and butter.
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.”
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.”
“The toughest phase of my life was when I lost my wife. Then my father passed away and my mother also died and later in-laws too. I was left alone. I am all alone,” he said.

Despite financial crisis and working as a security guard, he hopes to “have a good bank balance and bag roles in films soon”. “I am hopeful they (producers and directors) will give me a chance. I know they will not say no. I have always received a positive response from them. They are waiting for me, mai aa raha hoon (I am coming back),” he concluded.
