At present, he is working as a watchman at a building in Mumbai’s Parel. However, he said in the video that he had to take a break from acting because of his bad health. Further he said that after the break, he found it difficult to re-join the industry. Right now he is doing this job of a watch-man to improve his financial conditions.

Nonetheless, he is also trying to reach out to film-makers for a job. “I am hopeful that they will give me work. I’ve received a positive response from them before,” Sidhu said.

Anurag Kashyap and Rajkumar Rao found his story very interesting and inspiring. Also, they sent their best wishes to him. Rajkumar also promised to put in a word with his friends in industry to help Sidhu in finding the next project.

“Very inspired by your story Savi Sidhu sir. Have always admired your work in all your films. Love your positivity. Will definitely ask all my casting friends to reach out to you. Perseverance is the key to overcoming obstacles.”, Rajkumar tweeted.

Anurag Kashyap also tweeted in his support and wrote: “There are so many actors out there who don’t have work. I respect Savi Sidhu as an actor and have cast him thrice when he earned the role. I respect that he chose to live his life with dignity and picked a job unlike so many entitled out-of-work actors who have either become alcoholics or wasted themselves away.”

Savi Sidhu did his first film when Anurag Kashyap cast him in Paanch. The movie was eventually shelved. He then played an important role in Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday. Also he was seen in Akshay Kumar’s Patiala House.
