In yet another rumor, Twitter was stormed with tweets about the death of former thespian Dilip Kumar. However, the air was promptly cleared by none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself and that too through Twitter.
Writing off the condolence messages to Dilip Kumar, Big B said that there were false rumors about the veteran actor’s death. He even added that, Sairaji – Saira Banu, Dilip Kumar’s wife had informed him of his well being.
Just a few days back, Muhammad Yusuf Khan, Dilip Kumar’s birth name, was seen at the wedding of Arpita Khan. He looked fit and fine there. However, finally on Monday, after a prolonged illness, the senior actor breathed his last at the Lilavati Hospital, of course, according to the rumors.
This is not the first time that anyone has played a prank on Dilip Kumar and that too such a serious one. In September 2011, there was a similar rumor that spoke of the actor’s death. Then it was his wife, Saira Banu, who had come up with a public statement refuting the reports.
We wish a long and healthy life for Dilip Kumar!
