Thank you very much for the concern, because mujhe bahut sare calls aa rahe hain. Mujhe laga mujhe apne darshakon ko bata dena chahiye ki mai perfectly alright hoon (I have been getting a lot of calls. I thought I must inform my viewers that I am perfectly alright). Thank you very much,” Mukesh concluded.
Mukesh Khanna also hit out at those who were resorting to spreading fake news and said they should be “caught and beaten up.” He wrote in the caption, “I am perfectly alright.

Muesh Khanna further told media sources that he was “fed up with rumour-mongers”, and that he had received multiple calls from anxious friends and relatives. He was quoted as saying, “I am fed up, literally fed up. I don’t know what to say or do to rumour-mongers who are out on such futile exercises which cause only fear, chaos and anxiety. Almost all my friends and relatives have called by now and one fan said he was relieved as he just had a terrible thing in his life when his mother passed away 20 days ago. I feel WhatsApp will close down if such news does not emanate from it.”
