Condemning her actions, Suresh Shyamlal Gupta, told the media, “Is this a joke? You stooped so low for cheap publicity. No one has stoopped this low in Bollywood. You have played with the sentiments of the people. There is a way to raise awareness. You can approach the government, an NGO or do a media conference. I have asked the Mumbai Police Commissioner that an FIR should be registered against Poonam Pandey and her manager.”

AICWA’s statement read, “The fake PR stunt by model and actress Poonam Pandey is highly wrong. Using the guise of cervical cancer for self-promotion is not acceptable. After this news, people may hesitate to believe any death news in the Indian film industry. No one in the film industry stoops to such levels for PR.

“Poonam Pandey’s manager had confirmed the false news, so there should be an FIR against Poonam Pandey and her manager to prevent anyone exploiting their own death news for personal gains (PR). The entire Indian film industry, along with the entire nation, paid tribute.”

Poonam clarified the reason for the publicity stunt in a video shared on Saturday, asserting that she is alive, and ‘cervical cancer didn’t claim me’. She acknowledged the fake news as a stunt orchestrated by her team to generate ‘critical awareness’ about cervical cancer.

In a video posted on her official Instagram page, she emphasised, “I feel compelled to share something significant with you all – I am here, alive. Cervical cancer didn’t claim me, but tragically, it has claimed the lives of thousands of women who stemmed from a lack of knowledge on how to tackle this disease… Together, let’s strive to put an end to the devastating impact of the disease and bring #DeathToCervicalCancer.”

In a follow-up video, Poonam apologised for the stunt but reiterated her intention to raise awareness about the disease. “I am sorry I caused this stir and I am sorry to those I have hurt. My intention to shock everyone into the conversation that we are not talking enough about cervical cancer. The news of my death serves a greater purpose,” she said.
