Rumors spread that celebrities alive in 2020 are dead!
Mentioning 2020 as the worst year and sharing memes is still not done on social media. The death toll from the corona virus in 2020 is yet to end globally, with the discovery of the newly mutated corona virus, which has caused people to lose their livelihoods due to the virus, leading to worsening this year, including the deaths of prominent celebrities.
Meanwhile, false news that living celebrities are dead and in poor health has gone viral on social media.

2. Anurag Kashyap
In September 2020, KRK Box Office (a verified profile with a blue tick), announced the death of film director Anurag Kashyap and shared thousands on its Twitter page.
Yama was seen yesterday .. Today, Yamraj left himself back home. Said – now you have to make more films. If you don’t make a film and don’t goofy / devout boycott, then his life will not be meaningful. They got meaning, so left me behind. https://t.co/fHuZN6YQ5n
