After false death news spread on social media, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Mandar Chandwadkar aka Atmaram Tukaram Bhide, had to come Live on Instagram. The actor shared that he is hale and hearty unlike what’s being reported.
Mandar in his Live video said, “Namaste, How are you all? I hope work is good. I am also at work. But there’s news that someone has forwarded, so I thought to come LIVE before people get worried. On social media, rumours spread faster than fire. I just wanted to confirm that I am shooting and enjoying myself.”
He added, “Whoever has spread the false news, I request him to stop it. May God bless him with ‘sadbudhi’. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s artists are completely healthy and happy. They plan to do a lot of work in the future for many years and entertain people.”
Not only Mandar, but other artists such as Divyanka Tripathi, Mukesh Khanna, Shweta Tiwari, Shivaji Satam, and others have been victims of death hoaxes in the past. They had to give interviews and post on social media to clarify the false news.
