It was on this Thursday when there were a number of media reports claiming actress Mumtaz’s death!
The latest celebrity to fall prey to a death hoax is Mumtaz. While she is all fine in London, the reports on Thursday claimed that the actress passed away. She is very unhappy with the rumours going on, as it had happened last year as well.
Talking to TOI, she said, “Oh! I am hale and hearty. Main abhi zinda hoon. I am glad someone called to check officially. I don’t know why someone is deliberately doing this. Is it some kind of a joke? Last year, it shook my family and everyone called in, worried sick. My near and dear ones were in different parts of the world and it traumatised all of them. In a way, it also troubled me a lot.”
She added on saying, “This year, my daughters, grandkids, sons-in-law and my husband are all here with me in London. The lockdown has kept us all at home, together, and safe. Of course, I have more relatives around the world who got worried reading what made the rounds last night. Mujhe kyun maarna chahte hain log? Jab waqt aayega to main khud hi chali jaaongi.”
Mumtaz further said that her family will inform everyone about her death. And till then people should not spread such rumours. She said that she can’t get her head around these death hoaxes that make the rounds once or twice in the year.
