Sharing screenshots of accounts on X (Twitter) that spread the false claims, the star said,“False news! Completely untrue! I have never given an interview. If anyone knows, please point me in the direction of who started this rumour. Need to hold people accountable for simply making up these types of false news just to get clicks (sic).” She added,“It's very sad that certain sections of journalism have come down to this. I urge you – Be Better than this ! #stopfakenews.”
In a follow-up post, Nithya said she found the social media user who started the false claim and wrote,“We are all here for such a short period of time . It always surprises me how much wrong we do to each other 🙂 I point this out today because only accountability stops bad behaviour. Be better humans thebuzzbasket ursbuzzbasket letscinema and all the others who have followed this bandwagon. #stopfakenews.”
