Bollywood legend who is known for his tremendous acting in the films, his twitter account was misled by unidentified hackers. Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter account was hacked and his display picture was replaced with that of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Besides, the Mumbai Police have initiated inquiries into the alleged hacking of the actor’s Twitter account. It is said that the hackers replaced Amitabh Bachchan’s display picture with that of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and modified the bio with “Actor … well, at least some are STILL saying so !! Love Pakistan”
Hackers posted their first tweet criticizing India, it read, “The Indian State, who mercilessly attacks the Muslims fasting in the month of Ramadan, is attacking the Ummah Muhammad in this age! Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid.”
Later, another tweet came in which 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. As Ayyldz Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++”
The Mumbai Police’s statement
For the following incident, the Police said that the Cyber police station in BKC and the Maharashtra Cyber Crime unit were informed after the matter was brought to their notice.
