Poonam Pandey, 32-year-old, model and actress, went on to her Instagram to clarify that she was alive and that the news of her death from cervical cancer was not accurate.

She said that she was “proud of” what her death news has achieved.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, she posted videos apologizing to her fans and followers for “shocking” them.

On Friday, Poonam's manager in an Instagram post had said that she died of cervical cancer.

In a video, Poonam said, "I am alive. I didn't die of cervical cancer. Unfortunately, I can't say that about those hundreds and thousands of women who have lost their lives because of cervical cancer."

She went on to talk about the disease, according to Indian media.

Sharing the video, Poonam wrote: "I feel compelled to share something significant with you all - I am here, alive. Cervical Cancer didn’t claim me, but tragically, it has claimed the lives of thousands of women who stemmed from a lack of knowledge on how to tackle this disease."

She also said: "Unlike some other cancers, cervical cancer is entirely preventable. The key lies in the HPV vaccine and early detection tests. We have the means to ensure no one loses their life to this disease. Let’s empower one another with critical awareness and ensure every woman is informed about the steps to take. Visit the link in the bio to delve deeper into what can be done. Together, let’s strive to put an end to the devastating impact of the disease and bring #DeathToCervicalCancer."

Poonam Pandey's team had confirmed cause of death

While Poonam's unexpected “death” was mourned by numerous fans and celebs on Friday, there was speculation about whether it was a stunt, the cause, as well as her family's silence.

On Friday, a post shared by the late actor-model's team on Poonam Pandey's official Instagram account read: "This morning is a tough one for us. 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 for privacy while we remember her fondly for all that we shared."

Speaking to, Poonam’s manager Nikita Sharma further said: “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.”
