Model Poonam Pandey is now facing the consequences of her actions after publicizing her fake demise in a bid to create awareness about cervical cancer.

The AICWA said that Pandey's act has hurt the sentiments of all Indians who paid tribute to her after that. "Strict action against them is necessary so that such types of fake news will not be circulated by anyone," the body said, adding, "using the guise of cervical cancer for self-promotion is not acceptable".

"The fake news of the demise of model and actress Poonam Pandey due to cervical cancer sent a shockwave among all in the Indian Film industry. This fake news was created for a publicity stunt by model and actress Poonam Pandey which is being confirmed by her manager. This fake news hurt the sentiments of all Indians who paid tribute to her. We request your good self to please file an FIR against both Poonam Pandey and her manager for spreading fake news merely for their PR publicity. Strict action against them is necessary so that such types of fake news will not be circulated by anyone. Such cheap publicity is not at all accepted in our Indian Film Industry which has high emotional values for all," the statement read.

Poonam Pandey's 'didn't die' post

A day after official Instagram account informed of her apparent death, Pandey, 32 conceded to her 1.3 million followers to reveal that her death was a hoax. "Yes, I faked my demise, extreme I know. But suddenly we all are talking about cervical cancer, aren't we?" Pandey said. "I am proud of what my death news has been able to achieve," she added, highlighting that now everybody is talking about cervical cancer.

Poonam Pandey made her Bollywood debut with 2013 film 'Nasha'. 'Love in a Taxi', 'Ardhangini', and 'Uvaa' are some of her other films.
