Creating an internet death hoax has become a daily occurrence now. Many times false reports surround a certain deceased celebrity and in a short time their representatives or near and dear ones are asked to provide clarification. Latest artist to fall victim to death hoax is Ramayan’s Raavan aka Arvind Trivedi. His show co-star Sunil Lahri who played Laxman took to his Instagram page and clarified that he is very much alive and well.
Sunil shared photos of Arvind and wrote: “Aajkal Koi Na Koi Buri Khabar sunane Ko milati Hai carona ki vajah se, Upar Se Arvind Trivedi ji (Ravan) ki jhuthi khabar, Meri Prathna Hai jhuthi afwah failane Walon se kripya Karke Is Tarah ki khabar na jiayeek … aur Prathna Karta Hun Ki Bhagwan unhen sadaiv Swasth rakhen.“
(These days we keep hearing bad news because of Covid-19, but the news of Arvind Trivedi Ji’s disappearance is false. I ask those who spread false news to stop. With mercy of God, Arvind Ji is well. I pray for his health life).
In May 2020, it was also rumored that Trivedi had passed away. It was then his nephew Kaustubh Trivedi who quashed the rumor by writing: “Dear all my uncle Arvind Trivedi Lankesh is all good and safe. Stop spreading fake news, this is a request. Now if he will you please spread this. Thank you. ” Even on Arvind’s official grip, it was shared that he was fine. “
