Kota Srinivasa Rao: ‘I am pained to see the kind of baseless speculations doing rounds. Few Youtube Channels & Social Media have been used to report that I am sick due to heart related issues but desperate to continue acting till my last breath. Is it acceptable to report such things without knowing facts or cross-checking? These rumours have hurt My Family Members. Our Relatives have been calling us to know if these reports are true or false. This has become like a business on social media. Government should do something to stop such speculations. Recently, Rumours about Singer Susheela’s health went viral. She then issued a clarification saying all’s well. People have been encouraging Me since the past 40 years. At the age of 70, How can anybody be completely fit? Luckily, I’m not suffering from any serious health issues. Those who wish to work with Me are offering roles. ‘Jawaan’ & ‘Balakrishnudu’ are ready to release. I am working for three more films’.
Movie Artiste Association (MAA) lodged complaint with Cyber Crime Department against 20 Youtube Channels already for allegedly spreading baseless rumours. Even few arrests have been made in the recent past but still such misleading reports continue to surface.
