How the rumor spread
Actually, there was a tweet from the Twitter account @KRKBoxOffice. It was written - 'May the soul of Anurag Kashyap rest in peace. He was an excellent storyteller. We will always miss you. ' After this, many other social media users felt that Anurag Kashyap was no more. The amazing thing in this is that a user even told it to commit suicide.
कल यमराज के दर्शन हुए .. आज यमराज खुद घर वापस छोड़ के गए । बोले - अभी तो और फ़िल्में बनानी हैं तुम्हें । तुम फ़िल्म नहीं बनाओगे और बेवक़ूफ़/भक्त उसका boycott नहीं करेंगे , तो उनका जीवन सार्थक नहीं होगा। उनको सार्थकता मिले इसलिए वापस छोड़ गये मुझे। https://t.co/fHuZN6YQ5n— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) September 14, 2020
Answer to Anurag
Anurag Kashyap's answer came before the matter worsened and rumors spread. He wrote- Yesterday, Yamraj was seen .. Today, Yamraj himself left home. He said - now you have to make more films. If you don't make a film and don't goofy / devout boycott, then his life will not be meaningful. They got meaning, so left me back. '
Handle gave the explanation
@KRKBoxOffice also clarified this. In another tweet, he wrote - We are very sorry that one of our staff misunderstood Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Kapoor's name. We published an incorrect news about Anurag Kashyap. May Anurag Kapoor's soul rest in peace! '
This has happened before
Even before this, rumors of the death of many celebs have spread in the Corona era. The same happened with the late director Nishikant Kamat. He was admitted in the hospital, then the news went viral that he did not live in this world. However, Ritesh Deshmukh confirmed the matter by tweeting.
