For the past few days, some Indian news channels went berserk giving the untimely death of superstar Sridevi a relentless coverage. The insensitive coverage and reconstructions of the actor’s last moments has triggered outrage among public and other cine stars in the industry. A section of media even debated over her life choices, fitness regime, cosmetic surgery choices and her age defying sculpted look, prompting Actor Amala Akkineni to write out an open letter.
In her Facebook page, Amala laments about the drawbacks of the stardom and heavy social pressure it brings along to look always young. “Will you let me age gracefully without needing to comment on how tired I look or the weight I have gained? Allow me a life, some privacy, to engage with humanity and the universe, with purpose, truth, compassion and some respect for those now gone.” she wrote.
Truer words were never spoken!
