Veteran Bollywood actress Mumtax has rubbished the rumours of her death on Friday and assured her fans saying that she is still alive and presentable.
Taking to social media, the daughter of Mumtaz, Tanya Madhvani shared a fresh video addressing the death hoax.
In the video clip, Mumtax can be seen saying, “Hi, all my fans. I love you. See? I’m not dead! I’m alive and I’m not that buddhi (old) as they say. I am still presentable because of your blessings.” Rumours of Mumtaz’s death have featured in headlines earlier also but more on that later. Posting the video message of the actress, Tanya shared a brief note, in which she also talked about her mother’s battle with cancer. She wrote: “Message from my mother to her fans! With another death hoax going around she is well and doing great! Despite images of her being spread across the internet when she was fighting her cancer battle many years ago that claim she looks old!”

Message from my mother to her fans ! With another death hoax going around she is well and doing great ! Despite images of her being spread across the internet when she was fighting her cancer battle many years ago that claim she looks old ! . She is now healthy and happy and beautiful ! Give her a break she is 73 !
“She is now healthy and happy and beautiful! Give her a break, she is 73!” she added. Mumtaz was diagnosed with cancer in the early 2010s.
This is not the first time the 73-old actress has been headlining for her death hoax. Last year, she had been in the news for her death hoax.
Rubbishing the death hoax, Mumtaz’s family members had told news agency PTI, “She is alive, fit and fine. She wants to know why everybody is spreading false news.” Her daughter Tanya had also posted a video, in which she could be heard saying: “So exhausting another rumour of my mother’s death. She is healthy and looking beautiful as always and has asked me to let her fans know she is well! It’s all rubbish.”
Mumtaz was one of the most sought after actresses of the Sixties and the Seventies. In that time, she shared screen space with the renowned actors like Dev Anand (Hare Krishna Hare Ram and Tere Mere Sapne), Dilip Kumar (Ram Aur Shyam), Dharmendra (Loafer and Aadmi Aur Insaan), Rajesh Khanna (Apna Desh, Prem Kahani and Sachaa Jhutha) and Sunil Dutt (Humraz and Nagin).
Mumtaz has two daughters named Tanya and Natasha.
