Anurag Kashyap's big, bad faux pas!

Anurag Kashyap, the man behind many indie films and often thought of as a thinking filmmaker, committed the biggest faux pas of his existing career. Last evening, the filmmaker who gave the world Gangs of Wasseypur, put himself in a world of shame by tweeting that veteran actor Dilip Kumar had died. “Two deaths today…Ajay Jhingran and now Dilip Saab. Something else died too..Shittiest day ever…”

He soon learned just how mistaken he was. A picture of a well rested Dilip Kumar in the ICU was doing the rounds, courtesy a family member. According to an Agencies report, the actor's wife also said,"He has to overcome the problem and it will take some time. But he is recovering. This morning he got up and had tea. He needs to rest. I thank all the fans and well wishers for their prayers and request them to continue with it."
Soon after Kashyap tweeted his apology.

While he is no stranger to courting controversy, lesson learned this time around, Mr. Kashyap? To find out which other celebrities have suffered death hoaxes, click on the slideshow below.
