Celebrity hoax death has been a trend for a long time on social media. Their are many celebrities who have been victims of this death hoax chain. Take a look at the celebs who became a victim of death hoax.

1. Farida Jalal

67-year-old veteran Bollywood actress Farida Jalal has become one of its latest victims of death hoax. On February 19, news about the actress’ death spread like wild fire on the Internet, with Twitter flooding with condolences for the actress, especially after her Wikipedia page too, declared her dead! However, the actor slammed the death rumours and said she is alive.

2. Shweta Tiwari

Television actress Shweta Tiwari who rose to popularity as Prerna of ‘Kasautii Zindagi Kay’ has also became a victim of death hoax as a fan page of Sakshi Tanwar posted a condolence message for the actress on Facebook. The news spread like a wildfire, and eventually Shweta’s husband Abhinav Kohli confirmed that the news about his wife’s death was fake.

3. Divyanka Tripathi

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein star Divyanka Tripathi has become the latest victim of a death hoax. The buzz was that the actress breathed her last after meeting with an accident. However, before the false news spread like wild fire, Divyanka took to Twitter to quash it. “Someone’s spreading news about me being in #RIPmode. Guys I’m very much alive. Please don’t trouble my friends and family with such rumours,” she wrote.

4. Amitabh Bachchan

In June 2012, there were news that Amitabh Bachchan died in a car accident. His accident was detailed so well that one could not help but accept it as a fact. Even his funeral details were shared over the social media. Well, the pictures of Amitabh Bachchan from his past hospital visits are wrongly taken and used to create fake death news about it. Big B, however, chose not to respond to the hoax.

5. Aishwarya Rai

Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan also have been victim of the death hoax. The news of her committing suicide went viral on social media. It was said that the actress was frustrated due to Bachchan’s family’s reaction on her bold scenes in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. While some reports claimed she committed suicide owing to marital woes. The reports added that her alleged suicide attempt and subsequent death was hushed up by the family.

6. Sana Khan

It was a classic case of mistaken identity for Sana Khan. The former Bigg Boss contestant and Jai Ho actress was bombarded with phone calls from family and friends, after a website mistook her to be the Pakistani actress (with the same name), who passed away in a road accident. Sana was shocked to see her picture on the website, which reported the other actress’ demise. Says she, “People have been dedicating ‘Rest in Peace’ messages for me on social media. I’ve been getting calls from everywhere. I had to clarify that it’s not me.” While the Pakistani actress met with an accident near Hyderabad in Pakistan, Sana was in Mumbai. The death hoax thus seemed implausible.

7. Dilip Kumar

Veteran actor Dilip Kumar has died quite a few deaths at the hands of gossip mongers. Dilip Kumar was rumoured to be dead after a message of the actor passing away went viral on messaging app, Whatsapp. The message, that went viral, stated that the Bollywood actor had died on March 2 at the Lilawati Hospital in Mumbai. “Big loss of the film industry. Bollywood superstar Dilip Kumar passes away at Lilawati Hospital of Mumbai.” However this is not the first time that the actor has been a victim of such rumours. A while back, when Dilip Kumar hadn’t been keeping well for a while and was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai, rumours of his death spread.
