Cuttack: Couple of days after rumouring the death of Odisha’s comedy artist Jairam Samal aka Jayee on Facebook, a youth today apologized the actor.
Sudipta Sahu, a first year PG student, reached Samal’s residence at Tulasipur here at around 12.30 PM and tendered an unconditional apology.
“He told us that he committed the act mistakenly. My father has forgiven him,” said the veteran actor’s son Jyoti Ranjan.
Notably, Sahu had on November 28 posted a photo on Facebook mentioning that Jairam Samal passed away which left thousands of his fans and several artists of Odia film and television industry in shock.
It later came to fore that the post was a rumour after some media persons and artists enquired about Samal and came to know that he is alive.
