Reactions on her Mother’s Death Report
TV actress Jaya Bhattacharya who very recently lost her aged mother is not having a very good time with the media. After a recent story which made a mockery of her financial situation, another media outlet carried a story yesterday (25 February) about her mother passing away, but headlined it as she is no more.
Says Jaya in reaction to the report, “Most people don’t bother to read the story and just go by the headline. This is highly irresponsible. Mom had passed away two days (23 February) before the untimely passing away of Sridevi and here you are trying to mix up 2 tragedies just to gain traction.” “I wonder why the media is after me. What have I done? My life has been turned into a joke in the past two or three months.
Yesterday I was flooded with phone calls of anxious people who wanted to know what and why. Things reached such a pass that when people would Whatsapp ‘hi’, I would say ‘yes I am alive.’ This was actually happening when I was busy with some ceremonial dinner. All this added to the injury. I just request media folks to please use the power of the pen responsibly,” Jaya sends out a request.
