Gauahar Khan on Sidharth Shukla death: Don't come out and be a khabri

Taking to her Twitter handle on Saturday, Sep 4, Gauahar Khan said that people should stop adding to the "low standard" of journalism by "giving details" about a grieving family. "Any one who has met a grieving family, should not give out details. Really sad to see people giving interviews about family members and sharing details. Stop," she wrote. She added, "If you have gone to pay your respect don’t come out and become a khabri and add to the low standard of journalism."

On Friday, Khan had slammed Indian media for their coverage of Sidharth Shukla's death. Calling the reporting "shameful", she said that the media houses should be ashamed of it. "Hang your heads if this is what you do to someone who has lost a loved one! Be ashamed, very ashamed," she added. Further, the actor said that all media houses were "sensationalising" the tragedy.

Khan was also disappointed at the way the actors "took off their masks" right before being photographed by the media at Shukla's funeral. She said she was "disgusted" with everything that was going on. She said that celebrities really wanted pay respect, they could say a little prayer for the departed soul, instead of making it an opportunity to get clicked! The 14 Phere actor concluded, "I am sorry Sid! rest in peace super star."

Recently, Khan was in news for slamming Priyadarshini Yadav, whose video of repeatedly slapping a cab driver went viral last month. She said that the woman crossed all limits of indecency. On the other hand, the man didn't behave in the same way and that showed his upbringing. She "saluted" him for his gesture. Read more here.
