Sridevi. An Indian actress with immense talent encapsulated in her passed away recently at the age of 54. She was the heartthrob of India in her time. She was also a film producer of Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi movies. Regarded as Hindi cinema’s first female superstar. She was also the recipient of 5 Filmfare awards.
After achieving so much in life, she’s all over the country due to her demise. She’s all one could see everywhere on the day of her passing away. She was considered a legend of the industry, yet, the media has left no humanity on spreading light on it. The media is supposed to provide news to everybody, but, there should be some exemption being allowed to the family, friends and close ones. Leave some room for her to rest in peace.
Honestly, our opinions are of no use until we are rich or famous. They don’t matter until our words reach people and change their mindsets. These celebrities and sensible journalists have spoken about it and it’s an apt reply to every journalist because it was necessary for their thoughts to be inculcated in the media’s empty heads.

You ignore 254 movies in 5 languages over 45 years. You ignore private grief. You presume, conjecture, mock a death clutching a sketchy preliminary report. Dear shrill TV channels: You need to be investigated first on charges of murdering news. #SrideviDeathMystery #Sridevi
Have a look.

The only answer to these #Sridevi hideous hashtags on news tv tonight is one of our own : #NewsKiMaut. Forget a bathtub; a drain pipe will do for this gutter level rubbish. Ashamed to be affiliated with this. Relieved to not be on air in this present environment

And not for the first time, Indian news channels are now forensic experts, doctors and sleuths based on zero hard info . We don't let people live in peace, we won't let them die either! #Sridevi

We all are scared about how we will all die when we are young but today it makes me more scared about what would the media report after we are dead. Can people just stop reporting. We dont wanna know anything anymore #Sridevi

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 😢

I think we should all appreciate the stance these people have taken against the media. It’s high time they understand it.
