The news about Jishnu's health hit the headlines after a photo of the ailing actor went viral in November last year.  In the picture, Jishnu, son of veteran Malayalam actor Raghavan, was seen latched on to medical support. The photo was doing the rounds with the message about his cancer, caused apparently because of 'heavy smoking'.

However, it later emerged that the photo was taken after his first surgery in January last year by a hospital staff.

The news spread like wildfire and many Malayalam celebs, including Prithviraj and Indrajith come forward to clarify on the actor's health condition and requested their fans to not spread any false news.
