Actor Rohit Roy has been part of many successful shows on television, has worked in films and has also dabbled with the digital medium, recently took pot-shots at celebs, who take their pets outside for a walk.
Rohit took to Twitter and wrote, "All our dear celebs seeing ‘walking their pets’ look sooooo cool n classy in their perfect ‘walk the pet’ attire... never seen any of them carrying a plastic bag though wonder who picks up the sh*t once their babies are done?!?"
Rohit’s brother and actor Ronit also commented on the post and stated, "Puraani aadat hai logon ki (it's an old habit of people), to leave behind a mess for others to clean up."
Elaborating on the issue, Rohit told Hindustan Times that he’s seen pictures of celebs going out with their pets on social media.
He said, “I’d be wondering when will we develop the habit of carrying a poop bag. It happens only here."
“You want to wear fancy clothes, doll up, take a walk, please do it by all means. At least clean up the sh*t,” he added.
Roy has been a part of television shows such as "Waaris", "Rishtey", "Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand" and also films such as "LOC Kargil" (2003), "Dus Kahaniyaan" (2007), and "Fashion" (2008) amongst others.
He returned to the big screen in the action drama "Mumbai Saga", starring John Abraham and Emraan Hashmi. He loves doing high-octane action roles but asserts that he won't stick to just that genre.
At a time when actors in general seem to be gravitating from TV to the OTT space, Rohit says he will never forsake television, even if he continues working in other mediums.
"That day will never come," Rohit told IANS, when asked if he consciously plans to move away from TV.
"I am a product of television. I am who I am because of television. Had 'Swabhimaan' (1994) not happened to me in the beginning of my career, I would have not been here. But when I do television, it has to be role that leaves an impact or an indelible mark on people's minds. I don't see myself doing run-of the mill characters just to be part of television."Rohit Roy faces wrath of Rajinikanth fans after 'insensitive joke' about megastar testing positive for COVID-19
