Poonam Pandey reappears 24 hours after announcing her own death
Poonam Pandey, a popular Bollywood actress, is speaking out after announcing her own death recently. On a perfectly normal Friday, Poonam’s Instagram account, which boasted a whopping 1.3 million followers, broke a barrier.
The Bollywood actress vents her death on social media
In an official statement on Instagram, they said that she had died of cancer. “This morning is very difficult for us. It is with great sadness that we have lost our beloved Poonam to,” read the caption.
“She was met with pure love and kindness to every living form that ever came her way.”
The post was met with an outpouring of grief and sympathy. Many expressed disbelief when the movie star suddenly left. News of her death spread like wildfire on social media, with her manager Nikita Sharma later adding fuel to the fire by confirming her death to local media. .
“Poonam Pandey, beloved actress and social media personality, sadly passed away this morning due to breast cancer, leaving the entertainment industry in shock and mourning. Her indomitable spirit in the midst of her health problems was remarkable. “
Nikita also highlighted the need for more awareness and measures against preventable diseases such as breast cancer. But just 24 hours later, on Saturday (February 3), Pandey made a surprise appearance on her social media. She then came clean and admitted that the whole thing was staged.
So, what would make a successful actress want to fake her death?
The actress comes clean why she pulled the PR Stunt
According to the 32-year-old, it was about raising the alarm about the often overlooked health issue – cancer.
“Yes, I expressed my displeasure. Extreme, I know. But suddenly we’re all talking about breast cancer, aren’t we?” She said in her video.
“I’m proud of what my obituary has achieved.” Despite the backlash faced by some fans, Poonam held her ground.
She emphasized that breast cancer can be completely prevented with the HPV vaccine and early detection tests.
“Unlike some other cancers, breast cancer is preventable. The key lies in the HPV vaccine and early detection tests. We have the means to ensure that no one loses their life to this disease. “
There is no doubt that Poonam’s stunt, no matter how strange it was, has drawn attention to an urgent health issue.
According to the National Library of Medicine, India accounts for nearly one fourth of all breast cancer cases in the world. More than 200 women lose their lives to the disease every day in the country.
Not to mention that health activists have been lobbying the Indian government to roll out national HPV vaccines for teenage girls.
