Pop­u­lar TV ac­tor Sh­weta Ti­wari was a vic­tim of a hoax death news re­cently. What started the hoax was a mes­sage posted on ac­tor Sak­shi Tan­war’s fake Face­book ac­count. Af­ter sort­ing things out with Sh­weta, Sak­shi has re­ported the crime to the po­lice so that the mis­cre­ant can be nabbed. The ac­tor says she wants to make peo­ple un­der­stand that they can’t take ad­van­tage of her ab­sence on so­cial me­dia.

“The first thing I did was to call Sh­weta and clar­ify. Then, I re­ported the in­ci­dent so that peo­ple be­hind it get caught,” says Sak­shi, adding that she felt bad think­ing how it must have af­fected Sh­weta.

The ac­tor, who was last seen in Dan­gal (2016), says that she wants such im­i­ta­tions to be curbed on so­cial me­dia. “This kind of im­per­son­ation must stop im­me­di­ately. I don’t want any­one to take ad­van­tage of the fact that I’m not present on so­cial me­dia and cre­ate fake ids and com­mu­ni­cate on my be­half,” she adds.

As a re­spon­si­ble ci­ti­zen, Sak­shi felt that this is the right way to han­dle such an in­ci­dent. “If I keep quiet and let it go on, then I will be set­ting a wrong ex­am­ple,” adds the ac­tor, who is cur­rently shoot­ing for a web se­ries. Sak­shi is paired op­po­site Ram Kapoor in the same.
