This morning is a tough one for us. I am deeply saddened to inform you that we have lost our beloved Poonam to cervical cancer. Every living form that ever came in contact with her was met with pure love and kindness. In this time of grief, we would request privacy while we remember her fondly for all that we shared (sic).
The manager added that Poonam Pandey fought courageously for her life. However, since the cancer was in the later stage, it almost turned incurable.
Pandey’s manager, Parul Chawla, claimed in a media interaction that “She got detected with cancer sometime back, and it was in the latter stages. She was in her hometown in Uttar Pradesh, and the funeral will mostly happen there.”
