Farida Jalal further added, “I don’t know where these baseless rumors are coming from. Initially, I laughed, but from last 30 minutes my phone have been constantly ringing and everybody is asking the same question. It’s a bit irritating, I wonder why people spread such rumors.”

This was not the first time an Indian actor has been subject to a fake death hoax. Previously, legendary actor Amitabh Bachan, India’s hip-hop King Honey Singh and even the legend himself, Dilip Kumar, have all suffered the same fate at the hands of the internet.
