**Bhubaneswar: ** Followers of veteran Odia film industry comedian Jairam Samal were dejected to spot a shocking post on social network, which said that the actor was ‘no more.’
However, the melancholy did not last long as the piece of information posted on Facebook on Tuesday night, turned out to be fake.
On Thursday, a youth who claimed to have planted the news on Facebook, apologised before Jayee at his residence in Cuttack City.
Speaking to OMMCOM NEWS, the veteran comedian said, “The boy is a young lad aged about 22 years. He claimed to be my ardent fan and sincerely apologised for the tongue-in-cheek remark, which he said, was unintentional.”
