Actress Mishti Chakravarty is known among Tamil cinema fans for starring in 2018 black comedy action thriller film, Semma Botha Aagathey, which was produced by Atharvaa, who also starred in the lead role. Having said that, Mishti Chakravarty's name has come under a lot of confusion after a few reports stated she had died due to kidney failure, which in reality was the cause of death of a fellow Bengali actress by the name of Mishti Mukherjee, who passed away on Friday in Bengaluru. Many had confused the late Mishti Mukherjee with Mishti Chakravarty, which the latter has now clarified on her Instagram page by using a screenshot of a report, while declaring it to be as fake news. She captioned her post as follows: "According to few #mediareports i died today by god’s #grace iam hale and hearty and have a long way to go guys ..... #fakenews"
