MUMBAI: It seems like Bollywood Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has come back from the dead. Yes we’re talking about his ‘death’ rumours that were all over the internet this Wednesday, 17 April 2013. The reports suggested that the 26 year-old actor died in a snow-boarding accident.
The reports also suggested that the actor was vacationing with his family at the Zermatt Ski Resort in Zermatt, Switzerland and that after the accident he had to be air-lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital and apparently the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash.
As relieved and happy we are to know that Ayushmann is very well and healthy, there is no denying that this fake story ‘killed’ him in style!
A source close to Ayushmann said that the actor was busy shooting when he read the reports about his death: “Ayushmann was shooting when the unsavory rumour broke out. He was flooded with anxious inquiries. Initially, Ayushmann laughed off the rumours. But it soon became too much to handle.”
Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar who has herself been a victim of such rumours said: “Such rumours only add to the life of the person who is killed by rumour-mongers. I truly wonder who spreads these strange rumours! In this era of quick and bulk communication, anyone can send a vicious SMS about anyone and spark off an ugly rumour. Do such people realize how disturbed near and dear ones get by these rumours?”
Of course we all know that this is not the first time that ‘death’ rumours have surrounded actors in both Bollywood and Hollywood. Celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Morgan Freeman, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and so many more have found themselves at the mercy of these internet pranksters who spread rumours of their death, the most recent being Resse Witherspoon.
