A number of actors have been victims of death hoax on social media lately and Shaktimaan actor Mukesh Khanna was the latest one. The actor took to social media on Tuesday evening to quash rumours that suggested he was no more. The actor posted a video on Instagram saying he was “perfectly alright.” Khanna also slammed those who spread false rumours about him, adding that 'this is the problem with social media.'
Sharing a video clarifying he is absolutely fine, Mukesh captioned it as, "I am perfectly alright. These people who spread rumours are agents of the darkness. they should be caught and beaten up. I am healthy, by God's grace and your prayers and wishes. Take care."
He said in a video, "I am here to inform you all that I am perfectly alright. I am very well. I am here to refute the rumours, I have been asked to refute them and that is what I want to do. I also wish to condemn those who spread such rumours. This is a problem with social media."
"So I must tell you all that I am completely fine and perfectly alright. I have your wishes, and when someone has wishes from you all, how can anything happen to that person? Thank you very much for the concern, because mujhe bahut sare calls aa rahe hain. Mujhe laga mujhe apne darshakon ko bata dena chahiye ki mai perfectly alright hoon (I have been getting a lot of calls. I thought I must inform my viewers that I am perfectly alright). Thank you very much," he concluded.
Later, the actor even clarifies the same with a leading daily and said he was "fed up" of such rumours. "I am fed up, literally fed up. I don't know what to say or do to rumour-mongers who are out on such futile exercises which cause only fear, chaos and anxiety. Almost all my friends and relatives have called by now and one fan said he was relieved as he just had a terrible thing in his life when his mother passed away 20 days ago. I feel WhatsApp will close down if such news does not emanate from it," he said.
