Actress Kirti Kulhari says it's great to play fun games, but
if they put people at risk, stay away from them. Her message has come days after
The Blue Whale internet game reportedly claimed the life of a teenager here.
In a video that she shared with IANS on Friday, she said: "This video is going out to all the kids out there. I recently read some article about this very strange and dangerous online game. I urge you to stay away from this kind of temptation on social media."
"Please choose wisely and maturely from the options that you have. It's great to play games which are fun and make you enjoy, but the moment it puts you or anybody around you at risk, just know it's not the right thing."
As far as bravery and courage are concerned, the "Indu Sarkar" said, "trust me, life will give you enough opportunities to show that. So save it for that. Don't waste it on these stupid games".
A 14-year old schoolboy Manpreet Singh Sahani allegedly walked off the fifth floor of his building in Shere-e-Punjab Colony in Andheri East on July 30 evening.
The student, prior to his death leap, texted a friend of his intentions: "I am going to the building to jump." Before anybody could rush to help him, he had already jumped off.
His friends claim that he was playing the 50-day 'dare challenge' of The Blue Whale.
