Veteran actress Farida Jalal, who is known for her roles in films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, became the latest celebrity to be the victim of a death hoax and the actress is not at all amused by it.
In an interview to a daily, Farida clarified that she is quite hale and hearty and that she decided to clarify this because though it seemed amusing initially, she got irritated with the constant flood of calls and messages from friends and well-wishers. Farida also took to Twitter to write, ”I am here to confirm you that I am alive. News of my death is nothing more than a rumour. Stop spreading the fake & false news.”
Farida has won several awards for her acting talent including Filmfare Awards for Best Supporting Actress in Paras (1971), Henna (1991) and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995).
