Yesterday, the unfortunate news of Poonam Pandey’s death shook everyone. Pandey’s manager revealed that she was suffering from cervical cancer and was diagnosed at the last session. As per reports, Poonam took her last breath in Kanpur at her house in the presence of her family.
Several people from the industry, including Kangana Ranaut, mourned the death of Poonam Pandey. Kangana took to Instagram and posted a story in which she said, “This is so sad. Losing a young woman to cancer is a catastrophe. Om Shanti.” Poonam was part of Lock Up season 1, which was hosted by Kangana Ranaut.
The recent winner of Bigg Boss 17, Munawar Faruqui, who was also Pandey’s co-contestant in the show Lock Up, mourned her death. Faruqui took to X (Twitter) and wrote, “Shocking! can’t process the news. Poonam was a great human being. Sad. RIP”
Is Poonam Pandey Alive?
However, despite getting confirmation from Poonam Pandey‘s manager of her death, some people claimed that she was faking her death. Umair Sandhu, who is quite a well-known film critic, took to Twitter and said, “I just called #PoonamPandey Cousin now, and she is alive and enjoying her death news. She did a publicity stunt!”
After Sandhu’s tweet, people became furious and started questioning the credibility of his tweet. After that, several people asked him to remove his tweet, but he didn’t respond to any of them.
But now a video has been released by Poonam Pandey in which she states that she is not dead and is alive. This has angered the people to another level; they are calling her fake, and it was all a publicity stunt to raise awareness about cervical cancer.
