Bollywood supertstar Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter account was allegedly hacked on Monday night by Ayyildiz Tim, which claimed to be a Turkish hacker group.
The group replaced Bachchan's profile picture with a photo of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and also changed the bio, adding "Love Pakistan" and an emoji of the Turkish flag. However, minutes after the incident, the Twitter handle was restored.
Along with the profile photo, Amitabh Bachchan's bio was also changed. The actor’s bio read, “Actor… Well at least some are STILL saying so!! Love Pakistan”.
The account was restored soon after but the actor didnot comment on the same, instead through a cryptic tweet replied to a Good Morning post of a follower. His tweet in Hindi roughly translates as ' This is the truth of life, Accept It. Everything that is impure, boycott it.'

He than went back to his regular course of tweets of life and positivity.
"Express not just in words the existence of one ; not everyone has the capability to say what they understand and feel" said on of his tweets. He also shared a look from his upcoming thriller movie ;Chehra' co-staring Emraan Hashmi.

There has been many instances of actors falling prey to cyber criminals earlier as well. Recently, Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan too had his Facebook page hacked.
Previously, actors including Amy Jackson, Hansika Motwani and Akshara Haasan had also become the victim of cyber miscreants who had leaked their intimate pictures online. Taking a stringent cognizance into this, Akshara Haasan has even filed a complaint about the incident.
