Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter Account Hacked, Bio Changed To

Twitter account of Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan was hacked by Ayyildiz Tim, a pro-Pakistan Turkish hacker group.

The hackers identified themselves as Turkish Cyber Army and left some messages on Bachchan's Twitter account.

The first tweet by the hackers on Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter timeline read, "This is an important call to the whole world!" We do condemn the irrespective behaviours of Iceland Republic towards Turkish footballers. The hackers praised and displayed their friendly relations with Pakistan while slamming India for alleged attacks on Muslims during the holy month of Ramzan. "As Ayyıldız Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++" The following tweet read, "We are waiting for your support".

Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most active Bollywood celebrities on Twitter. The group also posted a photo on Instagram showing Bachchan with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid".

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. However, within an hour, the tweets from his account were deleted and the display picture and cover photo were removed.

Although it is unclear how the hackers got access to Mr. Bachchan's account, it is possible that his email and password may have leaked online in previous data breaches. "They are investigating the matter", a police spokesperson said in a statement.
