Fake news of Farida Jalal's death has surfaced online and the actress is quite miffed with all the developments surrounding to it. She is alive and health and released a statement saying, "I am hale and hearty. I don't know from where these baseless rumours are coming from. Initially I laughed, but from last 30 mins my phone have been constantly ringing and everybody is asking the same question. It's a bit irritating, I wonder why people spread such rumours."
Born on March 14, 1949 in New Delhi, Farida Jalal has worked in more than two hundred Bollywood films. She has also starred in several films in Tamil, Telugu and English. She is also popular in the Indian television segments as well.
Also, death hoaxes is nothing new to the film industry as Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan and Yo Yo Honey Singh have been victim to the falsehood stories of sudden death.
