The actor tweeted, "My phone number was leaked by members of TN BJP and @BJPtnITcell. Over 500 calls of abuse, rape and death threats to me and my family for over 24 hrs.

The actor further shared a screenshot of one of the comments on Facebook where his number was leaked. Sharing the grab he blamed BJP TN members and wrote, “This is one of many social media posts by BJP TN members leaking my number yesterday and telling people to attack and harass me. "Ivan inimela vaaye thirakka koodathu" (this fellow must never open his mouth again). We might survive COVID. Will we survive these people?"

However, the IT cell incharge of the Tamil Nadu BJP has denied the allegations. BJP Tamil Nadu IT wing secretary, CTR Nirmal Kumar told IANS, “BJP workers are not involved in issuing death threats to actor Sidharth. We are in the process of supporting people with food and medicines during the Covid crisis. If he can prove that any BJP worker is involved in this, I assure you that strict action will be taken against him/her. Party workers should not listen to people like Siddharth who are simply spending time. We stay focused on serving the public.”
