Poonam Pandey made news when she said she did strip if India won the World Cup in 2011. The news was sensational. She was last seen on Kangana Ranaut’s Lock Upp. Though she did not win the show, people loved how composed and honestly she put forth her thoughts on her life, career and journey. In 2020, she got married to her long-time acquaintance Sam Bombay. But the marriage did not last long as she accused him of domestic violence. Poonam Pandey was the first name from India in the world of erotica entertainment. We extend our condolences to her loved ones in this moment of grief.
