Renowned actor Alamgir was hospitalised after contracting Covid-19, earlier this month. His condition is now stable. However, news of his death has been going around on social media since last night. His family took the step to clarify everything, and dispel all rumours.
"My father is doing much better than before. His condition is improving with the treatment by doctors. I do not understand why people are spreading baseless information. Is this really the time to spread rumours?" his daughter, Akhi Alamgir, told The Daily Star, asking people to act reasonably.
"Alamgir Sahab, and we as a family, are deeply shocked at the way some unscrupulous and vindictive persons are spreading totally baseless and false news about him. We cannot understand the reson behind spreading such malicious news other than gaining some notoriety and for the sake of sensationalism," renowned singer Runa Laila, also the wife of Alamgir, shared in a Facebook post.
