Reports started doing rounds that actress Rekha aka Deivamagal Gayathri had a car accident while on her way to Chennai from Bengaluru and died on the spot in the accident. Media houses started reporting this news and the film fraternity in Tamil and Kannada were in a state of shock since she was famous in both the industries.
But later actress Rekha Krishnappa quashed at all the reports and clarified that she is fine and is in Sringeri and travelling with family members. “I am all fine guys… at present in Sringeri Sharada Petta Temple,” wrote the actress in her message.
A few months ago, Bollywood actress Farida Jalal was also a victim of celebrity death hoax and later the actor had to clarify about the rumours.
