The news channels are sensationalising Sridevi’s death and that does not really set a good precedent. We understand that news channels hold the onus of bringing truth to people but there is a difference between presenting the truth and sensationalising the truth in the quest of TRP.
CELEBRITIES LASHED OUT AT NEWS CHANNELS FOR PLAYING TRP AROUND SRI DEVI’S DEATH
The abrupt and unfortunate demise of Sri Devi, the real ‘Hawa Hawai’ of Bollywood has left the entire nation weeping. The news of her death under suspicious circumstances on 24th February in Dubai sent tremors across the B Town and her fans can’t still believe that she’s no more.
Sri Devi was getting ready for the surprise dinner Boney Kapoor had planned for her. When she did not respond from the washroom for 15 minutes, the door was opened forcefully and she was found dead in the bathtub. When taken to the hospital she was officially declared dead and this comes as a huge blow to the Kapoor family.
As news channels are not any reluctant to sensationalise Sridevi’s sad demise and are playing round robins around it for TRP, Bollywood celebrities have lashed out at these news channels. From Farhan Akhtar to Suno Sood, Bollywood has come out to express its disgust in how Sridevi’s death has become a sensation. Here is how Bollywood lashed out at the news channels.
Here is how Twitter slammed news channels for making a sensation out of Sridevi’s unfortunate death.
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 2 young girls.. agreed, she was an actor n the ppl want to know details, but this?? #sridevi ji sorry but they won’t let you even RIP 😢
