Bollywood actress Sezal Sharma who is known for films, Ishq Na Hove Rabba and Game Paisa Ladk also featured in Ankit Tiwari's music video Salaam Hai Tumko which also starred actors like Rashami Desai, Shivin Narang and Balraj Sayal. The actress, talking to us exclusively, shared how she was harassed after her picture was used in late actress Sejal Sharma' death news.
Recently, TV actor and photographer Sachin Kumar's death resulted in havoc in another Sachin Kumar's life. There was an error of photohraphs used by a section of media, who put out a wrong Sachiin Kumar's picture in their articles. Something similar had happened with actress Sezal Sharma when the shocking news of Dil To Happy Hai Ji actress Sejal Sharma commiting suicide hit the Internet in January, this year.
Talking about those tough days, Sezal told SpotboyE.com exclusively, "I can totally relate to what Sachin Kumar must be going through as I have gone through the same phase in January this year. In fact, I am facing that problem till now."
Explaning how the error of pictures impacted her life, Sezal said, "I remember I had gone for a movie the night this news of her death came in and so many friends from the industry called on my number to check believing it's me. Chandan Prabhakar and Rajeev Thakur are my friends and they were in Dubai at that time when they came across the article and got so disturbed that they couldn't perform well. Thankfully, my family stays with me so they knew that I am safe and watching a movie in a theatre. The moment the film got over and I took my phone in my hand I could see hundreds of calls and messages. In fact, there were comments on my Instagram photos saying RIP."
The actress further added, "It all started when a reputed publication mistakenly used my picture on their article and later many followed them. After the news was spread, whenever I used to go out- to my gym, shoots or meetings- people used to feel shocked seeing me alive. I remember Karishma Tanna asked me when we had met , "You are alive?" I even tweeted from my account at that time to rectify the error but by that time I think they had changed the photo or removed the article."
Sezal had also filed a police complaint when the incident happened. "It was like a mental harrasment for me. I went to BKC police station and filed a written complaint against the matter. No legal action was taken but they posted an apology article later." concluded Sezal.
