But still, there was no stopping for rumours. Following this, the singer herself has issued a video statement from the US, clearing the air that she is alive and active.
“My dear fans, I am fine and I am in the United States. I will return to India tomorrow. Please don’t believe rumours about me. I am good. After my return, you (journalists) can come and interview me,” she said.
Praised as a melody queen, the singer has sung songs in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi and more.
