Yet again ‘Hoax’ news about Dilip Kumar’s death goes viral!

The hoax news about thespian Dilip Kumar’s death once again went viral on WhatsApp sending shock waves among millions of Dilip Kumar’s fans!

What is most disturbing about such hoax news is that these news not only hurt the sentiments of the celebrity targeted but it creates havoc for the family to handle anxious calls from well wishers. 

According to reports on Monday evening some miscreants sent a message that read “Big loss of the film industry. Bollywood superstar Dilip Kumar is passes away at Lilawati Hospital of Mumbai."

A close look at the massage that went viral and generated panic among Dilip Kumar fans reveals that it is a work of mischief maker, who is poor at English language. Check out its grammar. Nevertheless what is painful is that such messages have become nuisance and must be made a punishable offence. 

Readers may recollect in recent years there have been multiple cases of fake news surrounding the deaths of Bollywood celebrities. Salman Khan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Katrina Kaif, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Kader Khan and more recently Shakti Kapoor are among the many others, who have been the targets of death hoax in virtual world.

As regards, Dilip Kumar, this not the first time when such hoax news went viral. In fact in the past there have been several instances. In one instance Amitabh Bachchan had to take to tweeter to slam the rumor. 

Interestingly even mega star Amitabh Bachchan has not been spared from such rubbish rumors. In one of the hoax news Amitabh Bachchan was declared killed in a car crash in the United States. What was most hilarious about the fabricated story was that the story also stated in details about the funeral ceremony!! 

It is rightly said, “Technology well used is boon and if misused it becomes nuisance.”

Kamal Hassan’s Hindi film AMAR HAIN Re-launched

Kamal Hassan, unarguably country's most versatile actor-directors is once again making his tryst with Bollywood reviving his Hindi film AMAR HAIN that he was scheduled to make in 2012 but the movie was put on backburner due to his hectic schedules down South.

Confirming the media Kamal Hassan in an interview to a leading national daily said, “Yes, it is true I am re-launching my Hindi film AMAR HAIN. I am in talks with film producers Virendar Arora and Arjun K Kapoor and we plan to launch the film in November this year and complete it within five months of its inception.”


Speaking about the film Kamal informed, “Corruption and black money are plaguing the nation like cancer. Politics, which is regarded as the noblest profession, has unfortunately become the source of minting money. Hence through my film AMAR HAIN, I have tried to explore these bitter truths.”

“I had completed the script some four years ago but could not focus on it as the film is mounted on a large scale. It needed huge finance assistance hence I had shelved it. However recently when producers Virendar Arora and Arjun K Kapoor read the script they were bowled over by its hard hitting content and extended the financial aid.”

Producers Virendar Arora and Arjun K Kapoor, who are recently in the news for their upcoming film ABHI NAHI TO KABHI NAHI, starring Pankaj Kapoor-Lara Dutta confirming the exorbitant budget of the film said, “Our collaboration with Mr Haasan will be mounted on a broad scale as the film delves into forbidden political corridors and the nexus with the underworld."
