Anushka Sharma amplifies a post by Zakir Khan taking a dig at paps amidst Sidharth Shukla’s death
Anushka Sharma recently shared a post by comedian Zakir Khan on Instagram which was a dig at the pap culture amidst late actor Sidharth Shukla’s death. With the funeral pics making the rounds of the internet, many celebrities were upset that the media did not give late actor Sidharth’s family and friends any privacy in such a devastating time.
The post in English read, “They don’t think of you as a human being. Not because there aren’t any lines or boundaries. Your corpse is not a body without soul, but an opportunity to click pictures. As many as they can click. It’s similar to how people try to steal crockery from houses burning in a riot. Because after that, what use will you be? At most, 10 pictures, five news pieces, three videos, two stories, one post. That’s it.”
He further added, “That’s why your death will only be show for them. Your crying mother is a show, your father, broken by the pain, is a show, your depressed sister, your brother who has lost all hope, anyone who loves you, is a show. It would have been another thing had you been alive. After you, your crying loved ones will only quench their thirst. I’m just saying that this is the life you and I have chosen. Maybe you will regret it a little less if you knew this while you were alive. That’s why you should stay happy with your friends, love your people. Learn new things, make new relationships. Just don’t live for them. Whatever time you have left, live for yourself. Because for them, you aren’t even human.”
