South Indian actress Miya George, who was last seen in Prithviraj Sukumaran-starrer "Anarkali", was recently rumoured to be part of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's upcoming movie, tentatively titled "Vijay 60". A Twitter handle with the actress' name said: "Im so excited and happy to be a part of #Vijay60 will let you'll know more updates soon #Blissed. (sic)"
The "Chettayees" actress has now come forward slamming the rumours about her presence in the much-awaited Tamil movie. Miya has claimed she is not part of Vijay 60, and added that the Twitter account that shared the news was a fake. "The Twitter account below is a fake one nd the matter also..I don't hav a Twitter account so kindly ignore that account ..thank u (sic)," Miya posted on her Facebook page.
After the fake news of her being part of the Vijay-starrer went viral, many had started congratulating the actress. "I was not greeted this much for any film, thanks everyone for the hearty wishes, much love #touched, (sic)" reads another tweet on the fake Twitter account.
Miya has already made a mark in Kollywood with her performances in "Amara Kaaviyam" and "Indru Netru Naalai". She also has two Tamil projects in her kitty — "Oru Naal Koothu" and "Vetrivel" — which are expected to be released later this year.
The actress, who received positive response for her role as Dr Sherin in her previous Malayalam movie "Anarkali", is awaiting the release of "Paavada", which is her third film with Prithviraj. The movie is scheduled to hit the screens on Friday, 15 January. Miya will also be seen in Jayan K Nair's comedy entertainer "Hello Namaste" with Bhavana, Vinay Forrt and Sanju Sivram.
