Farida Jalal is no more? Can you believe that? Sure no, right? Well, you don't even have to believe it, because it's all hoax. A lot of rumors have been spreading like fire about the veteran actress's death. But none of them are true! It was since yesterday morning, that news like these started making rounds on the social media. Almost everyone was taken aback after this! But it was all fake! Yes, Farida Jalal, herself has confirmed the news and completely called it hoax. She has also clarified further that she is all healthy and hearty. This is what Faridaji said in her defense, to publicist Himaanshu Shukla, who came out in open and gave the statement on her behalf "Veteran actress Farida Jalal not dead – After Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, another actress becomes a victim of a death hoax after a message of the Farida Jalal passing away went viral on social networking site. Farida said, ‘I am hale and hearty. I don’t know from where these baseless rumors are coming from. Initially I laughed, but from last 30 minutes my phone has been constantly ringing and everybody is asking the same question. It’s a bit irritating, I wonder why people spread such rumors'"
This is not the first time though, that someone has been a victim of such rumors. Prior to this many big actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Dilip Kumar, Shashi Kapoor etc have also been prey to similar death gossips. In fact it was just a few months back, that some dummy news claiming Aishwarya Rai attempted suicide, also started making rounds.
For now we are happy, that the veteran actress is fit as a fiddle, and doing all fine!
