Salim Kumar, the next victim of death hoax, made it clear that he is all alive and working on his directorial venture. The National Award winning actor was rumoured to be dead a few times earlier also. The rumours regarding Salim Kumar has been doing rounds since last few months.
Yesterday, some leading online journals reported that Salim Kumar passed away due to liver cirrhosis. Along with the actor, his close friends from the movie industry, including actor-lyricist Nadhirshah reacted violently to the death hoax.
Earlier, Salim Kumar was hospitalised due to problems related to diabetes. But some media reported that the actor is suffering from liver cirrhosis. But later, Salim Kumar himself revealed that he is perfectly alright and criticized media for spreading such baseless rumors. He funnily quoted that he is the only Malayalam celebrity who has such a huge number of death hoax to his credit.
Salim Kumar is not the first victim of death hoax in Malayalam industry. Earlier, actors like Prithviraj and Jishnu Raghavan has also been the victims of death hoax.
Prithviraj was rumoured to be died in an accident, during the filming of a movie in Singapore. A photo which was clicked during Jishnu's treatment period had gone viral a few months back and it was reported that the actor passed away.
