Veteran South Indian actress Jayanthi was rushed to Vikram hospital in Bengaluru on Sunday (March 25) after she complained of difficulty in breathing.
Following the viral reports on Jayanthi's supposed death, many politicians, celebrities fell for the confusion and consequentially took to social media and expressed their grief and condolences. She was put on ventilator support but her condition is said to have improved in the last four days of the treatment.
Jayanthi's son told the media, "There is no truth in the news of Jayanti's death in social media".

Rumours of her passing began doing the rounds on Tuesday afternoon, but they were rubbished when reports stated that the actress was being shifted out of the ICU.More news: ERC20 (ERC20) Price Reaches $0.0003 on Exchanges
