Celebrities slam TV media for sensational reporting on Sridevi’s death

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

TV media's frantic reporting over the death of veteran actor Sridevi has angered Bollywood celebrities and her fans, who have called the coverage "graceless" and "insensitive". Celebrities such as Vidya Balan and Farhan Akhtar criticised the TV channels for suggesting various conspiracy theories on the cause of her death.

Farhan posted a cryptic tweet where he wrote, "There's no bottom in the barrel of the graceless." Balan posted a photo of the late actress and said, "May they let you rest in peace...."

"Such a shame that whole country is silently watching their superstar Sridevi being murdered live by media," wrote a user while another user said media should stop using Sridevi's death for entertainment. "I've always felt this and the way the Indian media is reacting to one of Indian Cinema legends death is further proof that life has no value in India. Sridevi didn't die to entertain you..."

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan wrote, "Get back to love .. It is the only sustainable !!" Fashion designer Masaba Mantena appealed people to switch off their television. "Do yourselves and your family a favour... Put that TV off, I am amazed that news channels are stooping to this level and people think it's ok to come on a panel and discuss this! There are two very young girls who lost their mom, please please stop this," she said. Sonu Sood wrote, "I wonder after doing such reporting about a legend who lost her life..Can these people sleep in peace? Ashamed to live in times where we have to see such a standard of reporting on reputed channels. Shame on you... Let someone rest in peace."

Actor Rohit Roy, tweeted, "It is very very sad the way certain news channels are treating the passing of a lady, a daughter, a wife and most importantly, a mother of two young girls. Agreed, she was an actor and the people want to know details, but this? Sridevi ji sorry but they won't let you even rest in peace." Director Abhishek Kapoor wrote, "Dont know which is a bigger tragedy. Sridevi passing away or the mad feeding frenzy of it by the media.. Heart goes out to Boney sahab. I hope he is ok."

Echoing similar thoughts, Anubhav Sinha tweeted, "Several hundred years later history books will mark these years for the death of journalism."

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
