From morphing Sridevi’s picture in a bathtub to running special segments with titles like “maut ka bathtub,” the reportage last night was disgusting, ludicrous and everything in between. No wonder then, #NewsKiMaut became one of the top trends on Twitter.

A huge set of celebrities and people  like Vidya Balan, Farhan Akhtar, Sonu Sood among others lashed out at the media outlets for the insensitive coverage.

Indian envoy to the UAE, Navdeep Suri, also requested the media outlets to be responsible in their reporting.

All we can do is hope that the same media outlets take this as a lesson and do some sensitive reporting on the case. As because of few news channel reporting other news channel new authenticity will be impacted. What do you think? Pls tell us and stay tuned to circle of Bollywood for more updates!!
