Dancer and YouTuber Sambhavna Seth was under the spotlight for vlogging Sidharth Shukla’s last rites and received major criticism from fans and the industry. Artists like Vikas Gupta, Gauhar Khan, Anushka Sharma and Kushal Tandon have recently criticised celebrities gaining attention due to the death of another celebrity. The vlog contains footage of the dancer and her husband watching the news while deciding when to leave for the last rites. The duo then got into a fight with the police at the crematorium when asked whether they were supposed to be present for the last rites.
Seth then responded or rather retaliated to the same with the following tweets, “We being celebs were concerned as fans too to know about @itsSSR family and friends at his funeral… Same way @sidharth_shukla fans were also glued with tv sets to know what his family and friends are going through. They have all the right to know what is happening inside. And giving a general insight to his fans through media or social media is not a crime unless you are leaking inside video or pictures. Which I didn’t. Those who are becoming over smart with their tweets were also scrolling their social media feeds to know what was happening there. And those blaming me for making a vlog of it, first of all, go and watch my full vlog keeping your jealousy aside. I didn’t show even a single pic or video from there. Like your daily job is blaming. Mine is vlogging the same as acting/dancing. Because I find it better to capture my unfiltered feelings myself and post them on my youtube channel than paying paparazzi-like others to follow me at the gym, shopping malls and funerals. I am my own representer dear chaps & chicks. So chill.”
