- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan became the latest victim of death hoax online late Sunday.
Many actors, like her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan and actress Katrina Kaif, suffered a similar fate in the past.
The false reports claimed on Sunday that the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil actress had taken an overdose of tranquillizers after repeated ‘family quarrels’ over her steamy photo shoot with actor Ranbir Kapoor.
The reports also added that Aishwarya's alleged suicide attempt and subsequent death was hushed up by the Bachchans'. The alleged hoax went viral on social media.
However, the rumours stopped when the 43-year-old star was spotted at a party thrown by Manish Malhotra late on Sunday.
In an interview, a source told Hindustan Times, “I was with Aishwarya and Abhishek till 2 am today morning at designer Manish’s home. She looked radiant and happy, posing for photos. A lot of guests complimented her for how striking looks in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and her husband seemed rather pleased about it.”
Earlier, rumours spread that the Bachchan family requested a doctor at their house when they discovered Aishwarya’s alleged attempted suicide. And to keep the matter hush-hush, they allegedly did not take her Aishwarya to the hospital, the reports added.
The website Outlook Pakistan even quoted a physician, who was allegedly treating Aishwarya. He claims she said, “Let me die, it is better to die than living such pathetic life.”
Earlier, actors like Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, Dilip Kumar, singer Honey Singh and Lata Mangeshkar have suffered similar hoaxes.
