While talking to Hindustan Times about the matter, Dilip Joshi asserted, “This news is fake. Aisa kuch nahi hua. I don’t know where it started from and how. This news has been in circulation for two days and I was astonished to hear it.”
He further added, “Bhala ho uska jisne yeh galat khabar falai. Mujhe itne logon ke phone aaye mera haal chaal puchne ke liye. So many old friends and extended family called. It was good catching up with them (laughs). (Due to this) I found out how much people love me. So many people were worried about me and my family, it was heartening.”
He signed off by adding, “Hamne agar kuch kiya ho toh aisi koi baat nikle, bina sar pair wali khabar hai yeh (If we have done something, then such a thing should come out, this is news is pointless).”
