Even as thousands of people pledged support to veteran activist Anna Hazare in the fight against corruption, Siddarth joined them by not taking food for a whole day, in solidarity with the old man and his determination.
“I’m not eating the whole day today. I feel guilty eating when a great man, who is fighting for me, is not. I’m with Anna Hazare,” the south Indian actor wrote on his microblogging page.
The support for Hazare touched its peak in Bollywood when Aamir Khan, Hritik Roshan, Shyam Benegal, Farah Khan, Mahesh Bhatt, Om Puri, Anupam Kher, Raza Murad, Tom Alter, Madhur Bhandarkar, Neetu Chandra, and others openly expressed their solidarity.
Some personalities even joined the gathering at the Azad Maidan in Mumbai on Friday to express their support for Hazare, who is on an indefinite fast demanding that the government bring in a comprehensive anti-corruption bill.
