Bollywood legend Sridevi passed away in Dubai on Saturday night. She was initially thought to have died of a cardiac arrest but later the post-mortem analysis revealed that it was due to “drowning in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness.”
Following the completion of post-mortem analysis, @DubaiPoliceHQ today stated that the death of Indian actress Sridevi occurred due to drowning in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness.

There are obviously some unanswered questions surrounding her death which need to be reported and talked about. But mainstream Indian media outlets that thrive on sensationalism are creating an effin’ soap opera out of her tragic death.
From rendering low quality bathrooms on their shitty green screen to hosting full blown debates speculating her death, Indian media manages to hit a new low every single day.
*slow claps for investigative journalism*
We often complain that Indian media is always reporting about Taimur, but on a second thought, that’s all they should be allowed to report about.
As you might expect, people on Twitter are furious over the insensitivity of Indian media while reporting her death.
If you want to see how low Indian journalism can get, "reporting" on a celebrity's death is a good place to begin.

Sridevi may have died due to Accidental Drowning, but Indian Media should drown voluntarily. Chullu bhar paani mein.

'Bathroom mein 15 mins', 'maut ka bathtub', 'maut ka raaz', 'Nashe ki latt'. Someone died, and the media is seeing it as an opportunity for TRP. Shame..

The same Indian TV media that was scared out of its wits to even mention the mysterious death of Judge Loya in a case that is of huge public interest, has no hesitation desecrating the memory of an actress & vandalizing the privacy of her family in their most distraught moment.

There is a bad odour about the Sridevi death story. No investigation, no official confirmation, just cheap sensationalism. Indian media continues to seek lower depths by the day.

Indian media never disappoints. They actually created a bathroom in the studios to keep it real. What better way to pay tributes to Sridevi who entertained us for almost 50 years. pic.twitter.com/BYKktJkkt9

Indian media is the .01% of germs that Dettol can't kill.
