Actress Shan George has debunked a rumour about her colleague Hanks Anuku roaming the streets in tattered clothes.

A video of a man roaming the streets in tattered clothes who many believed to be the actor surfaced online on Monday, November 14.

In the disturbing footage, the man, who bears the same physical appearance as the film star, is seen looking unkempt and haggard on the streets of Benin.

The man is also seen talking to himself in public.

While it remains unclear if Hanks Anuku is actually the one in the video and if it is from a movie set, the footage has attracted a lot of reactions on social media platforms, with many users voicing their concerns.

Reacting to the speculations in an Instagram story on Monday night, pointed out that the actor is not insane as widely feared.

The 52-year-old who also shared pictures of himself and the actor at a movie location added that they were both on a movie set three days ago.

She wrote: “Nothing dey do Hanks o. We dey same set. This pix is three days ago.”

Shan also posted a video of herself and the actor, saying that they were together on a movie set three days ago in Asaba.

She wrote: “Three days ago in Asaba. Hanks is fine O. We are on same set.”

Hanks who often stars as a villain in many Nollywod films hails from Ika in Delta State.

He has been featured in movies like Broad Daylight, Formidable Force, My Love, Bitter Honey, Rambo, Jango, Fools on the Run, The Captor and Men on Hard Way.

In June 2020, Hanks debunked a rumour about his death.

The 62-year-old confirmed that he is still alive and advised his fans to disregard the rumour in a video he shared on Instagram.

“I am alive do not listen to them, they are poisonous press vipers and they are not the children of God… God is in charge of my life and not them…,” he said.

His sister Rita Anuku, a former Miss Nigeria died in 2015.
