Zakir Khan lashes out on insensitive media workers in a poetic way 

Media personnel are known to be largely insensitive towards the private life of celebs and their families. In recent times, they have taken their liberties to a near inhumane level. We have lost quite a few talented actors in last one year or so, and after all these unfortunate events, media workers have left no stone unturned to harrass the family and friends of the departed soul for their content. Same was seen in the case of Sidharth Shukla's death.

Comedian Zakir Khan smashed media workers for harrassing people in their time of grief and actress Anushaka Sharma has come out in his support. Zakir wrote a poem which roughly translates to, "They don’t think of you as a human being. Not because there aren’t any lines or boundaries. Your corpse is not a body without soul, but an opportunity to click pictures. As many as they can click. It’s similar to how people try to steal crockery from houses burning in a riot. Because after that, what use will you be? At most, 10 pictures, five news pieces, three videos, two stories, one post. That’s it.”

The poem continued, "That’s why your death will only be a show for them. Your crying mother is a show, your father, broken by the pain, is a show, your depressed sister, your brother who has lost all hope, anyone who loves you, is a show. It would have been another thing had you been alive. After you, your crying loved ones will only quench their thirst. I’m just saying that this is the life you and I have chosen. Maybe you will regret it a little less if you knew this while you were alive. That’s why you should stay happy with your friends, love your people. Learn new things, make new relationships. Just don’t live for them. Whatever time you have left, live for yourself. Because for them, you aren’t even human.”
