SPB gets angry after rumours kill singer Janaki

On Sunday, there arose a big social media lie that the legendary playback singer Janaki is no more.  By evening, even a few Tamil-language news channels were airing the news without doing a basic fact-check.  Janaki's son, Murali Krishna, lost no time in putting the record straight.  

Following this, Janaki's colleague and legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam took to his social media page to express dismay over the tragic rumour. He said, "Since this morning, I have received more than 20 calls asking me about Janaki amma's health.  It's because of a social media hoax that she had passed away. What nonsense!  I have spoken to her.  Her health is fine. Please use social media constructively.  Long live, Janaki amma!"  

Janaki recently underwent surgery.  She is recuperating from it.
