Actress Kanaka was surprised to see her death news going live on air yesterday, when she was very much alive! She was killed by the media. She got even more surprised to find the media outside her house, waiting for her funeral.
It has been reported that the fake news about Kanaka's death broke out soon after someone updated Wikipedia, stating she has died. Some online websites and even social networking sites spread the news like a fire. Soon a channel had the flash news confirming Kanaka's fake death. All this time Kanaka was at her home in Annamalai, Chennai.
News were in air that Kanaka was suffering from cancer, admitted in a palliative care in Alalppuzha, Kerala. People rushed from hospital to hospital searching for her. Answering this statement, Kanaka said that she was suffering from a disease (but she did not name the disease), but she did not have cancer. She said that she has never visited Kerala after her shooting for Vietnam Colony in 1993. But this statement seems contrasting. Her last movie in Malayalam was Narasimham opposite Mohanlal. The movie was shot fully in Kerala and this happened in the year 2000.
Soon after Kanaka's fake death news broke out, media approached her father Devdas, who confirmed that Kanaka is still alive and is in Chennai. The actress conducted a press meet yesterday to prove her existence.
Kanaka has been keeping back from the industry for last few years. She stays alone in her house in Annamali, Chennai.
