She was so polite and virtuous news anchor till date. One of my favourite news anchor of the 90’s. Condolences to the bereaved family and the entire @DDNewsLive team.

She was an epitome of grace on TV news in contrast to what we see today! Always used to fight with dad when he would play news over my cartoons but when I slowly started watching her, I was engrossed !That started my liking for news and current affairs!

#NeelumSharma of @DDNewsLive no more, she was one of the most graceful TV Anchor in our time. She had her own ways to present news without any influence of modern news anchors. She was far greater than new hollow anchors #RIPNeelumJI pic.twitter.com/dgdhHScbif— Tauqueer Ali Sabri (@tauqueer_sabri) August 17, 2019
