The way, the sad demise of the first woman super star Sridevi in a Dubai hotel is being sensitised and given dubious angles by some of our electronic channels definitely sends across a wrong message.

It seems, it’s either being deliberately given an out of proportion blow in terms of sensitivity to sideline the core issues of the massive PNB scam involving Nirav Modi and others or its a well orchestrated ploy to twist the story giving it a sensational look to increase their TRPs for inviting maximum advertisements.

The way Sridevi issue has been blown out of proportion giving it an angle of supposed foul play directly or indirectly allegedly pinpointing the suspicion towards her producer husband Boney Kapoor with not concrete evidence, unambiguously speaks of the fact as to how badly the journalism of some TV channels have stooped so low thus throwing to winds the values and ethics of free, fair and credible journalism.

You open any channel for the last two days and you’ll find the Sri Devi matter being twisted every hour giving it a different suspicious angle of heavy sensitisation/ sensationalisation whereas the autopsy/post mortom reports have clearly indicated it as a transparent case of unambiguous accident with Sri Devi’s blood samples showing the traces of alchohal.

While everybody in the country is immensely shocked and anguished over the sad accidental demise of this legendary actress the TV channels are busy giving the story allegedly the murdurous angle pinning fingers of suspicion towards her husband Boney Kapoor, says former MP and a veteran journalist Santosh Bhartiya.

The chief editor of a Hindi weekly, Chouthi Duniya and ex MP Santosh Bhartiya is extremely furious, angry, annoyed and concerned over the lowest standards to which the present day journalism is stooping to, particularly the owners, editors and reporters of some news channels who cook stories out of their immature and irresponsible imaginations and put the already traumatised and aggrieved families into more trouble as is the case with Sridevi’s anguished and aggrieved family.

Santosh Bhartiya asked who gave these so called scribes permission and license to point finger of suspicion towards Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor and what legal right do they have to draw conclusions out of their false and biased imaginations. Who are they to ask as to why Boney Kapoor came back to India and why did he go back to Dubai, the day the first woman super star and his wife died.

While catagorically deploring the irresponsible acts of such journalists calling them fake, inefficient and even foolish, Bhartiya said that it’s because of few such producers, editors or reporters of some channels that the already anguished families are put to more trouble and trauma as was the sad case of the former union minister Kalpnath Rai’s death out of the humiliation he suffered for writing a letter of an unwanted element unknowingly but was jailed due to the excessive media hype.

The former minister could not bear the humiliation and died of tensions thereafter. Similarly, some interested elements are bent upon giving Sridevi’s death an angle of murder on false grounds which is totally unacceptable in a free democratic society, without any credible evidence. He added: making mountain out of the mole without any credible evidence is highly uncalled for. Bhartiya aired his views on the subject on his facebook vedio and can be seen in You tube.


Prominent film maker and director Sanjay Leela Bansali’s MAGNUS OPUS Padmavati which is in tremendous controversy these days facing the threat of ban nationally by the KARNI SENA and its founder leader Lokendra Singh Kalvi who once slapped the former is a highly appreciable movie full of genuine historical facts which has in no way glorified the then king of 16th century but has instead proved him as a murderer who messacred hundreds of innocents.

Sanjay Bansali has in no way twisted any facts and denigrated the honour, dignity or respect of queen Padmavati but has instead glorified her image as a brave, dignified and a higly respectable queen faithful to her husband king Rattan Singh who always encouraged, guided and boosted his morale in the running of the administration of his kingdom and the wars he fought. These facts were revealed by the editor in chief India TV in his daily episode of Aaj Ki Baat, Rajat Sharma.

While disclosing the factual details of the movie today Rajat Sharma who himself saw the movie in a special preview said that, before watching the movie he too was under the impression that the nationwide uproar and outrage by the one sided critics of the film and KARNI SENA is absolutely correct as no opposition is ever based on false grounds.

But after watching the film extremely seriously, from all angles, as furiously opposed by a section of Rajput community, whose sentiments he respects, Sharma said he had come to a conclusion that there is nothing, not even a single percent of truth that the film’s director has in amy way fabricated, concocted or twisted the historical facts and exhibited queen Padmavati or her husband king Rattan Singh of Mewar in poor light, playing with their dignity, respect, aura, womenhood thus showing her in poor light as confidently claimed by those opposing the film tooth and nail.

Rajat Sharma said, he himself belonged to Chittaur and was born and brought up there and have tremendous respect and reverence for Rajput culture, tradition and sages of their bravery but after seeing the film sequences, had finally come to the conclusion that instead the movie Padmavati has enhanced the reputation, image, dignity, aura and grace of the historical queen who is remembered for her dignity, courage, bravery and sacrifice.

He confidently said that the people of MEWAR, the nation and especially those who are opposing it today so furiously calling Sanjay Leela Bhansali will feel proud of the bravery of MEWAR and its queen Padmavati for her acts of bravery and dignity which habe been portrayed so nicely and accurately as if history is being repeated on the silver screen.

He step by step revealed all the facts about the versions of those opposing the film and catagorically said that on every count they will find that all their objections are baseless and beyond facts. He said without seeing the movie casting such aspersions on the director of the film would ultimately not stand vindicated on the ground of facts.

It would have been better, had the opponents of the movie first watched the film and then raised the hue and cry than doing it first. The eminent literateur and veteran journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik too appreciated the film in toto and said that the director of the film Sanjay Leela Bansali has done full justice with the historical facts and have portrayed queen Padmavati as a higly dignified queen and Allauddin Khilji as a rash and ruthless killer.

Padmavati played by Deepti Padukone, Allauddin Khiljee played by Ranvir Singh and Raja Rattan Singh played by Kapoor have done full justice with their character who keep will definitely keep the audience stuck to their seats in theatres said Rajat Sharma.

It may be recalled that the KARNI SENA CHIEF Lokendra Singh Kalvi who calls himself as the directdecendent of the family of Raja Rattan Singh has been opposing the film Padmavati tooth and nail and had organised a huge public meeting and protest marches in Rajasthan and Gujarat recently in which more than a lakh people of Rajput community participated demanding permanent ban on the movie and registration of FIR against Bhansali on the charge of being a traitor/ anti nationalist. The Rajput women in traditional attires with sword in their hands were seen protesting outside the Mewar fort demanding Bhansali’s arrest etc.
