I am fine, observing lockdown at home: Naseeruddin Shah refutes hospitalisation rumours
Earlier today, rumours had surfaced that Naseer’s health had deteriorated and he was admitted to a hospital
Naseeruddin Shah and his family have dispelled rumours of the actor being hospitalised. On Thursday, while the world mourned Rishi Kapoor’s loss, a news channel and sections of the media claimed Naseer’s health had deteriorated and he was admitted to a hospital.
The news was later refuted by the 69-year-old actor on Facebook. “I thank all those enquiring after my health and reassure them I am fine I’m at home and observing the lockdown. Please don’t believe any rumours,” Naseer wrote.
Naseer’s son Vivaan also issued a clarification. He tweeted, “All well everyone! Baba's just fine. All the rumours about his health are fake. He's keeping well. Praying for Irfan Bhai and Chintu ji. Missing them a lot. Deepest condolences to their families. Our hearts go out to all of them. It's a devastating loss for all of us.”
Earlier on Thursday, Naseer’s niece Saira Shah Halim had reacted angrily to the reports.
“Can we sue this channel?? #NaseeruddinShah is perfectly fine. My father @zoomshah spoke to him a while ago. This is fake news!!” she wrote.
