Social media has been known to blow things out of proportion – or help users to. Such has happened regarding veteran Bollywood actor Rajesh Khanna. Although the actor is indeed weak and ill, users of the micro-blogging site have taken to announcing his demise.
Times of India have reported Khanna’s son-in-law, Akshay Kumar, as telling reporters from��outside Khanna’s bungalow, “He’s more than fine. He is absolutely fine. Thank you for your concern”. Fans had made their way outside the actor’s house and Khanna had shown them a V for victory sign to convey that all was well.
Rinke, his youngest daughter, has flown to Mumbai to be with her father and Twinkle, his elder daughter, Kumar and Dimple Kapadia accompanied him on the balcony. Although he looked very weak, he looked in good spirits, as is being reported.
It seems Twitter users have jumped the gun yet again. Long live the legend and yesteryear heart-throb. Kuch to log kahenge…
