Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter account hacked by pro-Pakistan miscreants

Mumbai, Jun 11 (IANS): Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter account was hacked, and his profile picture replaced with that of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday night.

His Twitter biography, which usually reads, "Actor... well at least some still saying so!", was suffixed by "Love Pakistan".

Additionally, three posts were sent out and the verified profile's cover image was also changed. One of the posts includes a picture of Khan with the Pakistan flag.

Another tweet, which was pinned, read: "This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland Republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big cyber attack here."

The hacking was taken note of within minutes.

"We have informed our cyber unit and the Maharashtra Cyber about the hacked Twitter account of Amitabh Bachchan. They are investigating the matter," a police spokesperson said in a statement.

The actor has 37.4 million followers on Twitter, where he regularly shares posts with what he calls his "extended family".

    Amitabh Bachchan, the face of 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign, refused to talk about the Kathua rape.
    When the whole Bollywood world condemned the incident, only Mr.Amitabh Bachchan reacted to Kathua Rape Case, Says 'Don't Bring Up This Issue'.
    For Mr.Bachchan it is just okay to make films on rapes & molestation and cash it but not talk about it when in real?
    What about the point of having such Twitter account and being the brand ambassador of 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao'?
    Will he repeats the same lines if he sees his granddaughter in eight-year-old girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district?

    The hackers should have reminded him about his responsibility. But the anti-Indian comment is not acceptable.
