New Delhi: On Wednesday, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar was rumoured to have suffered from a heart attack. Lata Ji, had later posted on her official Twitter page that she was healthy.
Today, news of veteran actress Asha Parekh`s death started doing the rounds on Twitter.
After the sudden demise of actress Nanda, it seems like the social network is going paranoid with wrong news of veteran artists passing away.
Tweets confirming that she was fine came a little later squashing the gossip going viral. Adah Sharma, who played the supporting actress in `Hasee to Phasee` tweeted:
Asha Parekh is hail and hearty ! Just spoke to her! Stop spreading rumours !!!

Asha Parekh had earlier spoken about the death of her friend and fellow actress Nanda saying, "We had to meet regularly, all of us friends. Waheeda Rehman, Sadhana, Helen, Nanda and I," she said.
Asha recalls all the good times she shared with her suddenly-deceased pal.
"We, the entire group of friends, last met for lunch on Saturday (March 22) just three days before Nanda was snatched away from us. Now I wonder how we girl pals would ever meet without missing her constantly," she said.
