According to reports on Feb. 8, 2013, rumors about the death of veteran Indian actor Kader Khan were making the rounds on the social-networking sites.
Reportedly, the 77-year-old actor is hale and hearty and has urged gossip mongers to stop spreading rumors.
"My family is extremely upset about it. They are very worried. All this has shaken my family. Whoever is spreading such rumours, please stop it," Kadar Khan told IANS.
"Ek din toh sabko jana hai aur main aap sabki duayein lekar jaunga, (one day everyone has to die and when I'll go, I will go with your blessings). Right now I am completely fine," he added.
Kadar Khan, who has worked in over 350 films and has written dialogues for over 250 Indian films, retired from acting a few years ago.
He recently appeared in "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi", "Lucky: No Time for Love" and "Family: Ties of Blood".
Khan also starred in his own comedy television series titled "Hasna Mat", which aired on Star Plus.
