Ritesh Sidhwani is one of the most celebrated producers of the Bollywood industry and has produced exemplary films like Gullyboy in a glorious list. However, the producer expresses his sentiments over how a whatsapp message is the easiest source of spreading fake news and how his neice’s safe from the coronavirus scare.
The producer took to his Instagram and shared, "Have been absolutely disgusted with forwards about my niece back from London, having tested positive in #CoronaVirus test! Bad news for #WhatsappMedicalCentre but a very good news for our family indeed that her reports are negative & I trust @mybmc reports a lot more! ?? @adityathackeray @uddhavthackeray and #AshutoshSalil"
Truly, technology has made our lives the easiest when it comes to connecting our loved ones, overseas but on the other side, it can also be used as a way of spreading fake news, particularly at a time when information is the most sensitive and important to not create panic.
This is also proof on how we shouldn't believe everything that comes our way. The pandemic has already bought the World to almost a standstill. Well, we are happy that his neice is healthy and safe. More so, every member of his family.
