While the country is mourning the death of Big Boss winner Sidharth Shukla, a glimpse of what happened when his alleged girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill appeared where his funeral was held, left many heartbroken and angry.
In case you haven’t watched the videos of his alleged girlfriend Shehnaaz Gill being mobbed by camera persons outside the crematorium where his funeral was held, here is what happened:
It is heart-breaking how our shameful media crossed the lines of decency and deprived Shehnaz’s right to grieve! It is distasteful that when it comes to actors and artist, media refuse to acknowledge the pain and grief of their family members! It is sad how there is no line between a private and public life when it comes to famous personalities! It is an important question to ask how much personalities and their family members owe us the story of their lives?
The Shameful Act Of Gathering News
It’s not that we don’t understand that paparazzis’ job is to gather celebrity news, but aren’t they bound to follow some ethical and moral grounds when it covers such events.
From crowding Cooper Hospital to stalling Gauhar Khan’s car, the mediapeople crossed all the limits to cover every minute update to audience.
The videos of Shehnaaz Gill show her being escorted through a crowd of people pushing and pulling around her—with no regard for her private space or even social distancing norms during these Covid times.
Netizens came forward to express the same concern.
Many were reminded of the similar situation that the Rhea Chakraborty outside of the NCB office last year. Why are we letting history repeat itself?
At IFORHER, we wish Media persona will show some empathy and respect the families and friends grieving. In the end, celebrities are people too! Their families have emotions too!
