Just like last year, once again yesteryear actress Mumtaz’s death hoax has emerged on social media. Since Saturday, the death hoax of Mumtaz started spreading on the web. But her daughter Tanya Madhvani has taken to social media to rubbish the rumours of her death. Last year, around May, the actress and her daughter Tanya had taken to social media and in an interview to rubbish the news of her death.
Speaking about the same Mumtaz told Bombay Times, “Oh! I am hale and hearty. Main abhi zinda hoon. I am glad someone called to check officially. I don’t know why someone is deliberately doing this. Is it some kind of a joke? Last year, it shook my family and everyone called in, worried sick. My near and dear ones were in different parts of the world and it traumatised all of them.”
“In a way, it also troubled me a lot. This year, my daughters, grandkids, sons-in-law and my husband are all here with me in London. The lockdown has kept us all at home, together, and safe. Of course, I have more relatives around the world who got worried reading what made the rounds last night. Mujhe kyun maarna chahte hain log? Jab waqt aayega to main khud hi chali jaaongi,” she added.
She further stated, “Jab marungi, to meri family officially bata degi sabko. It won’t be a secret. It will be all over the place, I know that and I am sure of that. Death is as real as life and everyone will face it someday. But I can’t get my head around these death hoaxes that make the rounds once or twice in the year about a few of us.” (ALSO READ: Veteran Actress Mumtaz Reacts On Rumours Of Her Death, Says, “I Was Just Laughing At The Situation”)
Mumtaz also said that people just spread the word without checking. She then added in times like these, when the world is fighting a pandemic, she wonders who thought of this insensitive hoax to get a few eyeballs. The yesteryear’s actress said she’s following the safety measures and is not even stepping out of her house. And her kids don’t let her go out. Mumtaz ended saying her kids are taking such good care of her and her health is great.
