Yesterday Kollywood circles and Tamil film audience came in for a shock with the fake news claiming that popular character cum comedy actor and voice artiste M.S.Bhasker has passed away. Later it was revealed that it just a handiwork of some dirty minds in social networking sites, while Bhaskar is fine and doing well.
The actor has clarified that he is hale and healthy and do not know what is the intention behind spreading such rumours about his death. The actor also added that he kept receiving calls from well wishers enquiring his safety.
M.S.Bhaskar is currently acting in many films including the Kamal Haasan starrer ‘Uttama Villain’ in which he plays an important role. Many Kollywood celebrities, who are active in Social networking sites, have condemned the people spreading such fake news about the actor and prayed for the long life of the actor.
Bhaskar is not the first Kollywood celebrity to be victimized by such death rumours. Last year news spread in Social networking sites that actress Kanaka has been taking palliative treatment for cancer and she has passed away since the treatment has failed. The ‘Karakattakaran’ actress arranged a press meet on the same evening and announced that she is neither dead nor was she a cancer victim. This is only the recent example and there are quite many rumours about the death of Kollywood celebrities that have circulated in the past.
