Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘sudden death’ message is being circulated on WhatsApp and on social media. Naturally well wishers and fans of the actors were shocked on reading this sms.
It’s a bloody hoax story that is doing rounds on social media!
Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘sudden death’ message is being circulated on WhatsApp and on social media. Naturally well wishers and fans of the actors were shocked on reading this sms. However, this looks like another ugly ploy by some miscreant to spread false information. It is surprising how fake celebrity death news on the internet spread like wild fire. This message even got sad fans pouring in their condolences to the star who is alive and kicking…
“At about 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday (February 23, 2016), our beloved actor Amitabh Bachchan passed away. Amitabh Bachchan was born on October 11, 1942 in Allahabad. He will be missed but not forgotten. Please show your sympathy and condolences by commenting on and liking this page.”
Obviously this mischief earned the Facebook page a few followers, however many fans called off the sham. This is not the first time a fake celebrity death news has gone viral in the cyber space. Last year too there were fake reports about Yo Yo Honey Singh and Lata Mangeshkar’s death. Actress Gul Panag, who is an adventure junkie had laughed off the episode when a trouble maker had put a post claiming that she met with a Skiing accident during her trip abroad.
Amitabh Bachchan himself is not new to the ‘false’ death alarm. In 2012 and even more recently in 2015 there was furor in the social media after posts of his untimely death started cropping up.
International celebrities like Rihanna, Britney Spears, Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks etc have also borne the brunt of such ridiculous news in social media.
Of course Amitabh Bachchan is hale and hearty and we wish that he continues to rule our hearts and the silver screen with his magnanimous presence.
