Ranu Mondal who became an overnight Internet sensation after a video singing one of Lata Mangeshkar’s songs at Ranaghat railway station. She, again got featured in headlines after media reports claiming that Bollywood superstar Salman Khan ‘gifted’ her a flat worth Rs 55 lakh. Well!! The lnternet sensation Ranu Mondal has not received any flat as gift from Salman Khan and neither she has received any payment for the songs she recorded for the music composer Himesh Reshammiya. All such rumours are baseless, a member of the club in Ranaghat claimed.
“Two members of our club had shot the video of her song at Ranaghat station, which became viral on social media. Since then, we have been looking after Ranu di. We haven’t heard anything about Salman Khan gifting a flat worth Rs 55 lakh to Ranu di. It’s fake news that is being spread on social media”, said Vicky Biswas, a member of Ranaghat’s Amra Shobai Shoitan club.
“A lot of fake news surrounding Ranu di is doing the rounds on social media, such as she has purchased a car worth Rs 15 lakh, or she has been called for Bigg Boss, or Himesh Reshammiya has paid her Rs 50 lakh to record her song. Yes, Himesh ji has done a lot for her and has also sponsored her trips to Mumbai, but the rest of these reports are fake,” Vicky added.
Vicky informed that the only payment Ranu Mandal has received till now, is for appearing on the Sony TV reality show Superstar Singer, where singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya is one of the judges.
