Bollywood’s veteran actor Anupam Kher is the latest celebrity to fall prey to cybercriminals. The micro-blogging website has temporarily suspended his Twitter account after it was allegedly hacked by ‘Pro-Pakistan’ Turkish cyber army ayyildiz tim. Also, Twitter handle of Swapan Dasgupta has also been suspended after hacking speculations.
After infiltrating Anupam Kher’s Twitter, the hacker wrote, “Your account has been hacked by Turkish based Cyber Army ayyildiz tim. All your date has been captured.” At the end of the tweet, the hackers wrote, “I love Pakistan”.
The hackers kept tweeting from Anupam Kher’s account. In the end of every tweet, they left the same messages; ‘I support Turkey’ and ‘I love Pakistan’. They also used Turkish flag and terrorists in the images.
The 62-year-old confirmed the news as he said, "My twitter account has been hacked. Just got few calls from friends in India about it. I am in LA and it is 1am. Got a DM yesterday from Swapan Das Gupta's account about a link. A first from him. So opened it. Have spoken to twitter already."
Some users immediately took to Twitter to point out the happening.

"What happened to Anupam Kher's account? Is it hacked? @TwitterIndia @TwitterSupport," tweeted another user.
