What Chinmayi had said about Poonam Pandey

Taking to X, hours after Poonam's death stunt unravelled, Chinmayi had said Poonam helped people by highlighting the critical need for increased awareness and proactive measures against preventable diseases like cervical cancer. She tweeted, "Poonam Pandey was highly criticised, to state it politely, for the way she lived. She showed us to live unabashedly, believe in herself, she exposed the hypocrisy in our fake~puritan drama, and in her passing, the star child she is, has created such an awareness for HPV cancer, making this place better than how she found it."

She added, “Thank you for traveling through earth, Poonam. Safe travels and I wish you a kinder Universe, elsewhere. I wish you dont come across humans if you so wish to reincarnate. You deserve better.”

In this time of grief, we would request for privacy while we remember her fondly for all that we shared."

Thereafter, speaking to Hauterrfly.com, Poonam’s manager Nikita Sharma had claimed, “Poonam Pandey’s commitment to her work and her unwavering spirit amidst her health struggles was truly remarkable. Her demise will continue to remind us of the urgency to prioritise health, particularly in the case of preventable diseases like cervical cancer.”
