A hoax news of former Indian cricketer Farokh Engineer’s death took over the Internet and that made people from all over the world call and message Farokh to confirm the news. It was obvious that Farokh denied the news but the fake news made many fall for it and one of them was Rishi Kapoor! Rishi with all his wishes tweeted ‘condolences’ to Engineer’s family on Twitter along with a picture of the cricketer.
The actor, however, got to know about the goof-up and deleted the tweet after a few minutes and apologized to the cricketer and his family for his mistake…
Sorry to have sent a RIP to Mr. Faroukh Engineer. This was because I was flooded by this false rumour.My apologies to the family and friends— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) October 25, 2016
Since the rumors were spreading fast, soon former Mumbai captain Shishir Hattangadi had posted on Facebook,
“Dear friends, this news doing the rounds of Farokh Engineer is a hoax. Farokh is fine. Please defuse all rumours on Farokh.”
