Everyone was shocked and could not believe when model and reality TV star Poonam Pandey, 32, death news from cervical cancer broke as was confirmed by her manager. The news, lacking family statements, had sparked shock and speculation. Poonam was seen on Lock Upp, “bravely fought the disease” and passed away this morning, her team told news.

She claimed it was a publicity stunt intended to raise awareness about cervical cancer, particularly among young women who might not get regular screenings.

Criticisms: Critics argued that:

  • It was a disrespectful and insensitive way to address a serious health issue.
  • It trivialised death and could be upsetting to people who have lost loved ones.
  • The “shock value” approach might backfire and ultimately do more harm than good.


  • The incident did spark widespread conversation about cervical cancer, but it was largely negative, focusing on the ethics of the stunt rather than the health message.
  • Pandey faced considerable backlash, both online and from celebrities.
  • It’s difficult to assess any long-term impact on cervical cancer awareness due to this specific incident.

Her manager Nikita Sharma stated, “Poonam Pandey, the beloved actress and social media personality, has tragically passed away this morning due to Cervical Cancer.” She highlighted Poonam’s “unwavering spirit” and stressed the need for awareness against preventable diseases like Cervical Cancer.

Social media reactions ranged from disbelief to scepticism, questioning the recent appearance of the model at a Goa event three days ago. The news emerged a day after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s announcement of plans for cervical cancer vaccination for girls aged 9 to 14 in Interim Budget 2024.

Media manager Parul Chawla, confirming Poonam Pandey’s death, stated she was waiting for details after a call from Poonam’s sister. The announcement was made on Poonam’s official Instagram page this morning, urging privacy during this time of grief.

Poonam Pandey gained fame for her 2011 Cricket World Cup message and later for posting a nude photo when her favorite team won the IPL in 2012. Over the years, she amassed a significant social media following with her controversial statements and explicit videos.
