Shah Rukh Khan is the latest victim of a death hoax. El Pais, a European news network, carried a shocking story which said, “Tributes have poured in for Indian film actor, producer and television presenter Shah Rukh Khan after he was killed along with seven others when a private jet he was travelling in crashed. It is believed to have been caused by turbulent weather. He was traveling in a Gulfstream G550 jet with his personal assistant and others to Paris for a meeting. The death of Shah Rukh Khan has stunned the Indian diaspora worldwide.”
The highly-detailed report obviously caused many to freak out. Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police, Deven Bharti, got in touch with SRK’s team as did several other police personnel, media, fans and friends. Many fans and police showed up at the actor’s bungalow Mannat to find out what was going on. Shah Rukh’s team responded to all the inquiries and assured everyone that the superstar was hale and hearty. In fact, he was nowhere close to France but shooting in Mumbai for his next film.
Phew! We’re sure millions are breathing a sigh of relief right now.
