Actor Shardul Pandit who is Poonam Pandey's close friend has expressed his displeasure with her publicity ploy involving a false death. On Saturday morning, one day after Poonam Pandey's death was declared on her Instagram account, the actress released a video statement clarifying that she is still alive. She claimed that the purpose of her death announcement was to raise awareness about cervical cancer. However, the 'awareness stunt' did not go over well with netizens, including her pals.

But I apologise to everyone that I showed grief. Public apology to my people, reports, and everyone else. Why am I putting this on video? Why haven't I called her? I called her, but her number was busy. I’ve been calling multiple people.”
