From Amitabh Bachchan to Madhuri Dixit to Lata Mangeshkar, there have been a lot of death hoax reports as far as Bollywood celebrities are concerned. And actor Shah Rukh Khan was the latest victim of a death hoax after a European News network reported that the 51-year-old actor was killed in a plane crash along with seven others. While it shocked his fans at first, but it was soon proved to be a hoax. Even then, SRK surely had a tough week. Why? Along with the death hoax, there were other reports about him, which were not true.
After the plane crash news, it was reported that a ceiling fell on him on the sets of a movie he is doing with Aanad L Rai and that SRK got seriously injured.
The actor finally took to Twitter to put all the rumours to rest, and the reply to the reports was surely a witty one.

LOL! Bravo, King Khan!
Well, for those who do not know, the rumours of SRK’s death led to a lot of panic and prompted the Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police to contact the management of Shah Rukh Khan, who confirmed that the report was untrue.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, a source was quoted 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.’
SRK will next be seen in Imtiaz Ali’s movie opposite Anushka Sharma.
