Bollywood celebrities slam media for insensitive coverage of Sridevi’s demise

Veteran actress Sridevi bid farewell to the world on Saturday night in Dubai. The actress, who was in Dubai for Mohit Marwah’s wedding last week, was found dead in her hotel room. The autopsy report termed ‘drowning in bathtub due to unconsciousness’ as the cause of death. As the Kapoor and Ayyapan family, Indian film industry and the nation mourns the death of Sridevi, media coverage of her untimely demise has been very insensitive and horrifying.

Dubai was following its standard procedure before handing over Sridevi’s mortal remains too the family. As it took more than 48 hours to bring her back to Mumbai, Indian primetime news channels and regional channels made some horrifying speculative stories over her death. Television’s frantic reporting on sudden demise really angered the film fraternity.

Bollywood celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Riteish Deshmukh, Vidya Balan, Shekhar Kapur and other slammed the media for stooping low. Even Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter and in his own way called out the insensitivity.

Sridevi’s mortal remains have been brought to the Celebrations Sports Club in Mumbai for the condolence meet. The celebrities from all sectors have been arriving to offer their last respects. The funeral of Sridevi will take place this afternoon around 3: 30 pm. At present, the entire Kapoor- Marwah- Ayyapan families are present for the condolence meet.
