According to Indian media, European News Network and El Pais TV, a news was carried out forward which read, “Tributes have poured in for Indian film actor, producer and television presenter Shah Rukh Khan after he was killed along with seven others when a private jet he was traveling in crashed.”
“It is believed to have been caused by turbulent weather. He was traveling 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,” the news added.
According to reports, the news even reached the Joint Commissioner of Mumbai police who immediately contacted SRK’s management, followed by assurances that the superstar was filming in Mumbai and that he was absolutely fine.
An Indian tabloid quoted 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, It had already been picked up by legitimate French and Indian websites. SRK’s team had to field calls all day.”
Shah Rukh’s death hoax created havoc in India, but unfortunately, nothing as close to a tsunami has taken place, as of yet.
