Model-actor Poonam Pandey is indeed "alive" but is currently facing severe backlash for faking her death as a publicity stunt. On Friday, a post on her Instagram handle claimed Pandey died due to cervical cancer. However, on Saturday, she posted a video online, claiming the death post was "meant to raise awareness about the disease." Her actions have been criticized as insensitive and distasteful by many in the film and television industry, including Aly Goni and Vivek Agnihotri.
