The people of Karnataka on Thursday afternoon was in a shock when news about Ravichandran attempting suicide went viral. But the people sighed a relief when the news turned out to be false.
It all started when a youth who was a resident of Hanumanthanagar went to a printing press in Chamarajpet and gave a order to print a pamphlet announcing Ravichandran's attempt for suicide. When the owner of the press got a doubt about the whole issue and asked about it, the youth is said to have said that he got the information from Ravichandran's brother Balaji that his brother has committed suicide because of his financial conditions. The owner enquired from his sources about Ravichandran and found that Ravichandran is hail and healthy. The Suvarna news channels then confirmed the whole incident and rumours about Ravichandran committing suicide are baseless.
Speaking to Chitraloka.com Ravichandran confirmed that the news is false and baseless. 'I am not afraid of such rumours and these kind of rumours are not new to me. I am not a person who commits suicide. I am a person with positive attitude and I don't care for such rumours. But I am afraid how my family reacts when they hear such news. Last time when such a rumour broke out, my father was upset for a week. Actually I was shooting at that time and my father didn't let the news to reach me. This time I happened to hear the news first and told my wife not to tell the news to my mother so that she won't be upset to hear such a kind of news' said Ravichandran.
