The electronic media has gone overboard once again! When actress Sridevi died mysteriously in Dubai, the media, especially the electronic channels, spread all kinds of news and theories. Despite everyone appealing for some respect to be shown to the actress, they did not pay heed.
Now, following Harikrishna’s death, they are doing the same. After news of his accident spread, many electronic channels started showing videos of the accident, and of his face, completely covered with bandages. If that was not bad enough, even more disheartening were the visuals of Harikrishna lying in a very bad condition and operation room footage, which were played repeatedly throughout the day.
Actor Manchu Manoj, the younger son of Mohan Babu, appealed to the media not to show the accident videos. “Request the media to stop telecasting #HariKrishna garu’s post accident visuals... It’s disheartening for his family & followers to witness their loved one in such an unexpected way..He belongs to all of us! Pls show some respect. Hope u oblige our request. Tq #RIPHarikrishnaGaru (sic),” wrote Manoj on his Twitter account.
