On 2 December, rumours of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan attempting suicide started swarming the internet.
Multiple media outlets reported the incident as breaking news, claiming the actor took her own life due to growing tensions inside the Bachchan household.
Images of Bachchan on a stretcher with bruises and bandages began circulating on the internet.
And it seems to have all started with a report on this Pakistani blog — Outlook Pakistan.
The blog reported Bachchan's suicide attempt by tranquillisers as a result of her "troubled marriage".
The ex-miss world and superstar of Indian film industry Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has just survived a suicide attempt in her in-laws home. Media reports claim that Aishwarya took the heavy dose of tranquillizers and wanted to end her life. When found out by the family, doctors were immediately called for her treatment.
Bachchan Family tried to keep the incident secret; that’s why didn’t take Aishwarya to the hospital. Even the doctors who checked her and washed away her stomach were not allowed to reveal the details.
