Mukesh Khanna, an actor, posted a video on Instagram slamming baseless rumours about his passing away. He also called out to anyone who circulated fake news, saying they should be apprehended and beaten up.
On Tuesday, rumours of Mukesh’s death started to circulate. He quickly reassured viewers, though, that he was well. He said this in a video he posted on Instagram, “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.”
He added, “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.”
Shaktimaan, a Doordarshan serial, made Mukesh Khanna popular. In the late 1990s, the programme aired. He is also known for his appearance as Bhishma Pitamah in BR Chopra’s Mahabharat television series.
