Raveena Tandon, got a shock of her life when she woke up on a Sunday morning with a barrage of condolences from friends, fans and well-wishers. It took a while for the actress to breathe and figure out what exactly has happened.
A leading newspaper, in its online edition took rumours to a who new level and published an article in its entertainment section headlined as 'Raveena Tandon Bereaved'. It went ahead and stated that Raveena lost her mother 'yesterday' and close friends and relatives rushed to offer condolences.
Raveena, fuming in rage and amusment was quoted as saying, "No such thing has happened. My mother is hale and hearty and by God's grace she has many more years to live. The closest she came to a health issue on Saturday when she's supposed to have--God forbid!-- died is when she had to take her dog to a vet."
Unfortunately, the leading publication has printed the news on their print edition as well which is totally false. Interestingly, the journalist who edited the supplement rang up Raveena and condoled her for the same.
Raveena rubbished her claims and was quoted as saying, "I told her it was not true and still the 'news' was used. They managed to pull it out of the print edition. But the damage is done. The item is very much there in the e-paper edition of the entertainment supplement."
Its disappointing to see entertainment journalism stooping to such lows, ""We've had false death news about celebrities on twitter. Now they're killing relatives of celebrities in mass-circulated newspapers. Guys, have a heart. Death is not a matter to gossip about. It concerns lives." says Raveena.
