Shah Rukh Khan recently became a victim of a death hoax, when a European news network called El Pais TV announced a breaking news segment, that the actor was “killed along with seven others when a private jet he was travelling in crashed”. The news report further said, “It is believed to have been caused by turbulent weather. He was travelling in a Gulfstream G550 jet with his personal assistant and others to Paris for a meeting. The death of Shah Rukh Khan has stunned the Indian diaspora worldwide”.  The news led to panic and the actor’s team got frantic calls from well-wishers.

According to media sources, Deven Bharti, Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police, called up SRK’s team and was informed that the actor was absolutely fine and was shooting in Mumbai itself.

“This isn’t the first time that Shah Rukh Khan has been at the receiving end of a death hoax. But this time, the gravity of the situation was worse since the news made it to a WhatsApp group of Mumbai’s top cops. It had already been picked up by legitimate French and Indian websites. SRK’s team had to field calls all day”, a report quoted.

Earlier on Tuesday, Baadshah had escaped an accident on the sets of his upcoming film, directed by Aanand L Rai, after a portion of ceiling wall fell off. Two crew members received minor injuries but were discharged after a while.

SRK is not new in the list of celebrities who have faced such hoaxes. Some celebs who had faced similar fate include Shweta Tiwari, Shashi Kapoor, Farida Jalal and Dilip Kumar, Sylvester Stallone, Morgan Freeman.
