There were reports of Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan dying in a plane crash recently. According to a European News Network, SRK was killed along with seven others when a private jet he was travelling in crashed.
Shah Rukh Khan is the latest celebrity to face a death hoax as a European news network reported that the Bollywood star was "killed in a plane crash".
A European news network called El Pais TV announced a 'breaking news' segment that SRK was "killed along with seven others when a private jet he was travelling in crashed."
The report further said, "It is believed to have been caused by turbulent weather. He was travelling in a Gulfstream G550 jet with his personal assistant and others to Paris for a meeting. The death of Shah Rukh Khan has stunned the Indian diaspora worldwide."
According to Mumbai Mirror, even the Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police, Deven Bharti, called Shah Rukh’s team and was informed that the actor is fine and was shooting in Mumbai. The report quoted a source as saying, “This isn’t the first time that Shah Rukh Khan has been at the receiving end of a death hoax. But this time, the gravity of the situation was worse since the news made it to a WhatsApp group of Mumbai’s top cops. It had already been picked up by legitimate French and Indian websites. SRK’s team had to field calls all day.”
The superstar today talked about the hoax and a ceiling collapse on the sets his film with Aanand L Rai while sharing his eventful week with fans on Twitter.
"TGIF! Survived the week in spite of a plane crash, fatal accident on sets and yet another title of Imtiaz Ali film! (sic)" Shah Rukh tweeted alongside a funny photo of him with 'Phew...!!!' written on it.
On Sunday, a portion of the ceiling collapsed on the set of Rai's yet-to-be-titled project in Film City. Two crew members suffered minor injuries in the incident. The shooting has reportedly been stalled for the time being and will resume later this week.
