"I don't know why people do this. How offensive and hurtful it will be for people associated with this issue? It is disheartening. Definitely it is not a SPB fan, because SPB would not do something like this. He was not someone who hurts others. He was someone who forgives. I forgive this person,” he said in a live-Facebook thing.

"He (the person who spread the rumours) has no basis for spreading this rumour. How much of an inconvenience is caused because of one person's action. I have nothing to say. God bless you," he added.
