Amitabh Bachchan has a huge fan following and his Twitter account is a proof. He has over 37 million followers and he is undoubtedly one of the most active celebs on the social media. On Monday night, the megastar’s Twitter account was hacked by pro-Pakistani Turkish group Ayyildiz Tim and his display picture in the account was changed to the picture of Pakistan Prime Minister, Imran Khan.

They did multiple tweets from Big B’s account. A tweet 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 Ayyildiz Tim Turkish Cyber Army.”

Later they tweeted about Muslims in India and then a tweet of their official Instagram handle with the caption, “We are waiting for your support.”

The Mumbai Police spokesperson told a news agency, “We have informed our cyber unit and Maharashtra Cyber about *hacked* Twitter account of @SrBachchan. They are investigating the matter. Further updates awaited.”

This is not the first time when this group has hacked a Twitter account of a celeb. Earlier, the same group had hacked the Twitter accounts of Shahid Kapoor, Anupam Kher, and others. Thankfully, Big B’s Twitter account has been restored. While most of the celebs tweet that their account was hacked, Amitabh Bachchan has not tweeted anything about it.

Talking about Amitabh Bachchan’s movies, the actor will next be seen in Jhund which is slated to release on 20th September 2019. He also has movies like Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Tera Yaar Hoon Main, Brahmastra and Chehre in his kitty. With Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Big B will be making his Telugu debut.
