Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Tuesday said his Twitter account had been hacked.The 62-year-old actor, who is currently in Los Angeles, said he got to know about the breach from his friends in India and had alerted the micro-blogging site about the incident.
“My twitter account has been hacked. Just got few calls from friends in India about it. I am in LA and it is 1 am.” Kher told PTI over text message.The actor said he received a link from Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta in a direct message, a first ever from him on Monday, which he clicked upon.
Dasgupta’s Twitter account is said to have been compromised by Turkish Pro-Pak hackers.
“Got a DM yesterday from Mr Swapan Dasgupta’s account about a link. A first from him. So opened it. Have spoken to Twitter already,” Kher added.
A message reading ‘Caution: This account is temporarily restricted’ is currently being displayed when one visits the actor’s account.
