Reportedly soon after the death of actor and scriptwriter Mohan Rangachari, popularly known as ‘Crazy’ Mohan, on June 10 following an acute heart attack, rumors began to do the rounds. Accordingly Kauvery Hospital confirmed that he could not be revived with a defibrillator, and he was declared dead at 2 pm.
Furthermore a Twitter user said that he had first been taken to Chennai’s meenakshi Mission a day prior to his death for heartburn, and further claimed that he was sent back without an ECG being taken. Further the user alleged that if the hospital had taken an ECG on June 9, they could have spotted the problem. Reportedly this thread was widely re-tweeted and gained traction, which led to Maadhu Balaji, Crazy Mohan’s brother, publishing a video to dispel the rumors.
Moreover imploring people to not spread misinformation that Mohan was ill and that doctors did not do enough to save him, Maadhu Balaji said, “That is all false news. He was hale and hearty until the end. Even the night before, he wrote 12 hymns in the name of god… it was destiny. He just left us all grieving. This is my personal request to all of you.” Perhaps Maadhu reiterated that Mohan died a natural death.
