Iconic Tamil actress ‘Aachi’ Manorama, who has lately been unwell, was hit by a death hoax after news spread that she passed away at her home in Chennai.

Having acted in hundreds of films that endeared her to her fans over the years, the news spread across the country on social networks, before the family stepped in and said that Manorama was very much alive, except that her health was not exactly in prime condition.

The family said that spreading canards will not do the actress any good and that people should desist from doing so.

Manorama has acted alongside famed actors who later took to politics like M Karunanidhi, MG Ramachandran and Jayalalitha and Andhra’s NT Rama Rao – some of the most powerful people in the country at one time or the other.

However, there was another Manorama in the acting field from the 1950s to 1970s, but she was in Bollywood, not South Indian cinema.

Reacting to the news of her ‘demise’ Manorama told news agency IANS that she was,  “Hale and hearty. Don’t believe in any rumours about my death. I’ve recovered well and have also signed three new films.”
