This is plainly irresponsible for any media platform to carry such fabricated stories. Just few weeks back iconic actor Rowan Atkinson, popularly known as Mr. Bean was said to have died. The British actor cum comedian  has too fallen prey to a similar death hoax frenzy sites. Well, we can only say both the actors are doing extremely fine.
