Pratyusha Banerjee's suicide had shocked the Television industry. A few actors close to Pratyusha came in front to support the deceased actress and her parents genuinely; while a few others used the incident for their publicity.
Dolly Bindra had called Pratyusha's mother, when the incident happened (April 1) and recorded their conversation. Apparently, this tape was also circulated in the media. When asked, Dolly had said that it was to prove to some of her friends, who thought it was 'April fool' prank! It was also said that actress took selfie with Pratyusha's body!
Pratyusha's close friend and producer, Vikas Gupta had also pointed this out in his press conference that he, along with his friends had organised to clarify the misconception that people had about Pratyusha's death/suicide. He had clarified in the PC that the actress didn't suffer any stress or depression or wasn't even financially weak.
Rakhi Sawant took this suicide incident to extreme level! In a press conference, she had urged people not to use ceiling fans. She had even requested PM Narendra Modi to ban ceiling fans and distribute table fans instead. The actress was also trolled on Twitter for the same.
Now CINTAA will send notice to both the actresses for being insensitive. A highly-placed source in the governing body was quoted by TOI as saying, "We are appalled by their insensitive and obnoxious statements. It proves how inhuman they are even in matters of death. It's a serious matter, and we are sending a show-cause notice to them."
Chairperson Dispute Committee, CINTAA, Amit Behl was also quoted by the leading daily, "A notice will be sent to them soon. People can't stoop so low and hog the limelight when the matter is as sensitive as this. I will raise the issue at our Annual General Meeting on May 1 and propose a ban on them."
We hope that such actors who take advantage and use such sensitive situations for their publicity, will learn a lesson!
