After Mukesh Khanna, Lucky Ali, Nafisa Ali, Kirron Kher, Meenakshi Seshadri and Tabassum, Paresh Rawal became the latest victim to celebrity death hoaxes. The veteran actor reacted to a social media page claiming that he has passed away. He shared screenshot of a Twitter page that has his photo with a condolence message in Hindi, announcing that "Paresh Rawal ji, a member of the film industry has passed away at 7am on 14th May, 2021".
Reacting to the hoax with humour, Paresh Rawal tweeted, "Sorry for the misunderstanding as I slept past 7am...!" The actor's fans, however, were not amused by the death hoax. While some expressed anger, others prayed for his long life. However, the Hungama 2 actor's witty response to his death hoax sparked a rib-tickling meme fest on social media featuring Paresh Rawal, which helped everyone tackle the fake news with humour.
Take a look.
In March, Paresh Rawal had tested positive for Covid-19, two weeks after taking the first dose of the vaccine. He had tweeted to inform about his health and asked those who have come in contact with him in the past few days to get themselves tested.
On the work front, Paresh Rawal will next be seen in Hungama 2, sequel to the 2003 film Hungama. The film also stars Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan Jaaferi and Pranitha Subhas. He will also be seen alongside Farhan Akhtar in the upcoming boxing drama Toofan. The film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra also features actress Mrunal Thakur. Toofan is scheduled for a May 21 premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
