Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan became the latest victim of allegedly false death rumours late on Sunday, months after actor and her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan and actor Katrina Kaif suffered a similar fate.

Reports claimed on Sunday that Aishwarya had taken an overdose of tranquillisers following constant ‘family quarrels’ over her steamy photo shoot with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil co-star Ranbir Kapoor. The reports added that her alleged suicide attempt and subsequent death was hushed up by the family.

The alleged hoax went viral on social media with blogs trending on the issue.

The rumours were only punctured when the 43-year-old star was spotted at a party thrown by celebrity designer Manish Malhotra late on Sunday. “I was with Aishwarya and Abhishek till 2am today (Monday) morning at designer Manish’s home. She looked radiant and happy, posing for photographs. A lot of guests complimented her for how stunning she looked in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and her husband seemed rather pleased about it,”a source told Hindustan Times.

According to another report, titled Outlook Pakistan, Aishwarya Rai blamed her rumoured “marital woes” for the alleged suicide. The website also quoted a physician who treated Aishwarya. The blog quoted the physician on the condition of anonymity as saying that on being saved, Aishwarya told him, “Let me die, it is better to die than living such pathetic life.”

Earlier, Bollywood actors Katrina Kaif, Amitabh Bachchan, Ayushmann Khuranna, Dilip Kumar, Honey Singh, Rajinikanth and Lata Mangeshkar have suffered rumours of similar death hoax online.
