Shah Rukh Khan, latest Bollywood celebrity to face a death hoax, replied in style to the alleged 'breaking news' by a European news network claiming that the star was 'killed in a plane crash'.
"Shah Rukh Khan has been killed along with seven others when a private jet he was travelling in crashed," reports El Pais TV in their 'breaking news' segment.
Bollywood 'Badshah' on Friday reacted in style over the fake news report and also talked about a ceiling collapse on the sets his film with Aanand L Rai while sharing his eventful week with fans on Twitter.
On Sunday, a portion of ceiling collapsed on the set of Rai’s yet-to-be-titled project in Film City. Two crew members suffered minor injuries in the incident. The shooting has reportedly been stalled for the time being and will resume later this week.
