In another case of growing intolerance and suppression of the freedom of speech and expression in the country, TV actor Sushant Singh was removed as the host of the daily-crime drama Savdhaan India.
The actor, who was the host of the show since 2011, tweeted about the news a day after he was seen in a protest in Mumbai and the tone clearly revealed why he was removed.
And, my stint with Savdhaan India has ended.— सुशांत सिंह sushant singh سوشانت سنگھ (@sushant_says) December 16, 2019
His set of fans noticed the flow of events and backed him for standing up against the rising evil unlike some Bollywood biggies.

When asked by a fan whether this was the price he was paying for speaking the truth, he calmly replied and said:
A very small price my friend. भगत सिंह, सुखदेव और राजगुरु को जवाब कैसे देंगें?— सुशांत सिंह sushant singh سوشانت سنگھ (@sushant_says) December 16, 2019
And then there was no stopping fans, who came forward to salute him for his stand.

Sukhdev you played in The Legend Of Bhagat Singh. You stood when needed. Thank You Sir.— Mehul Jain (@MehulChoradia) December 17, 2019
Hope the one who played Bhagat Singh in the movie could have 1% of Bhagat Singh in him. Bloody Vimal Chaap actor.
If this is the price to stand by my Nation then it’s nothing.— Ankit Kumar (@AnkitKu12268754) December 17, 2019
More power to you.
I just followed you, sorry I wasn’t known of the fact you are with the students from the day one.
Really appreciate your stand… It meant a lot to us. #CABAgainstConstitution
