The director tweeted, “This so tragic and sad. The mad rush to build aggressive body, without any medical advise is so dangerous. Hyper-gymming is a relatively new phenomenon, which got mad impetus due to Instagram. It needs to be regulated for sure. Society needs to rethink. Oh, Siddhanth, Om Shanti.”
