After singer Lucky Ali, Paresh Rawal became the latest celebrity to fall prey to a death hoax when someone on the internet shared that the ‘Hera Pheri’ actor breathed his last today at 7 AM. The post was also accompanied by a photo grieving the loss of the actor with his picture surrounded by candles.
Soon after this, Paresh Rawal took to his Twitter handle to clarify the death hoax with a hilarious tweet. Revealing that he is very much alive, he shared a screenshot of the report and wrote, “Sorry for the misunderstanding as I slept past 7am …!”. He is indeed the humour king of Bollywood!
