Producer Goldie Behl has urged people to be more responsible about the content they share on social media platforms.
Behl, the husband of Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre, asked the users to not spread or believe in rumours.
“I appeal to all to please use social media more responsibly. Let us not believe in rumours and spread them, unnecessarily hurting the sentiments of those involved. Thank you,” he tweeted Saturday.
The filmmaker’s tweet comes after BJP MLA Ram Kadam posted a message Twitter which read “Sonali Bendre, the actress who ruled Hindi and Marathi cinema was no more.”
He later clarified his tweet writing, “About Sonali Bendre ji. It was rumour. Since last two days… I pray to God for her good health and speedy recovery.”
Sonali is currently receiving treatment for cancer in New York.
