TV actor Mukesh Khanna, famous for his roles in shows like Shaktimaan and Mahabharat, took to social media to quash rumours of his death and assured that he is 'perfectly alright'. In a video, he said that he'd been asked to address the rumours and expressed his disdain of the same.

"I have come here to tell you that I am perfectly alright. I was asked to refute these rumours and that is what I want to do. I am perfectly alright especially since I have your blessings. And what could happen to someone who has your blessings?" Mukesh remarked. He mentioned that he's been getting a lot of calls so he decided to inform his fans about his well-being.

In the caption of his Facebook post, he wrote in Hindi, "With your blessings, I am completely healthy and I've not been infected by corona. I wasn't hospitalized either. I don't know who spreads such baseless rumours and why they do so. So many people are affected by this."

Relieved fans commented under both his posts wishing for his good health and longevity.


Khanna played the role of the famous superhero on the show Shaktimaan, and the larger-than-life role of Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharat. He acted as the chairman of the Children's Film Society before resigning in February 2018. He appeared in supporting roles, in films like Taaqat (1995), Barsaat (1995), and Himmatwar (1996).
