Actor Shekhar Suman and his family were ‘aghast’ after a news channel falsely reported that his son, Adhyayan Suman, had died by suicide. Shekhar took to his Twitter handle to lash out at the news channel. He tweeted that he is taking ‘legal action against them and suing them for such a reprehensible act’. Shekhar wrote in one of his tweets that his wife was ‘inconsolable’ as the news channel announced that Adhyayan has committed suicide.

Shekhar tweeted that the piece of news devastated him, his wife and family members. Slamming the channel, he wrote that media should be more responsible and not jeopardize people’s lives and destroy them for their own vested interest. He requested everyone to tweet and ban the news channel.

He demanded an immediate public apology from the channel in question and requested Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Prakash Javadekar, Maharashtra Chief Minister and Anil Deshmukh to take strict legal action against the channel for such an ‘irresponsible and reprehensible act’.

Shekhar didn’t accept an apology from one of the channel’s ‘regular’ journalists. He tweeted, “The bosses shld have some shame and own up to their faux-pas which is deplorable.Imagine if they had done the same to any of the political big-wigs.”

Earlier, in many interviews, Shekhar had spoken about the death of his elder son Aayush who died due to heart disease at the age of 11. He also spoke about Adhyayan’s mental health that he faced in the past.

One should be extra careful about these stories. Without confirmation, this type of sensible news shouldn’t be touched.
