“This morning is difficult for us. We are deeply saddened to inform you that we have lost our dear Poonam to cervical cancer. Every living being who came into contact with her was welcomed with pure love and kindness,” her management said in an Instagram post on Friday. Her team also confirmed that she “fought the disease valiantly.” But she passed away tragically.” Her colleagues and other public figures even paid tribute to her on social media.
“Cheap publicity stunt”
But a few days later, another video of the former actress suddenly appeared. “Yes, I faked my death. Extreme, I know. But that means we're talking about cervical cancer all over the world, right? That's all I wanted and I'm proud of what my passing did.” Because unlike some other forms of cancer, it's preventable. “Completely from cervical cancer,” she then defends herself in the video. “So we have the tools to ensure that no one loses their life to this disease. Let's help each other be aware of this and make sure every woman is aware of the research.
Even though Poonam Panday had good intentions, the internet is still angry over her extreme actions. “This is a cheap publicity stunt. She should be sent to prison for lying and making fun of cancer,” she said in the comments on her post. One fan added: “There are other and better ways to start discussions.” “Do you really think that after you faked your death, he would take Seriously cervical cancer anyone?” she continues in the more than 20,000 comments below her post.
