Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan Twitter Account Hacked allegedly on Monday night by Ayyildiz Tim, which claimed to be a Turkish hacker group. The group has replaced Amitabh Bachchan Twitter profile picture with the photo of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and also changed the bio, adding “Love Pakistan” and an emoji of the Turkish flag. A series of tweets were also sent out from his account. One of the tweets 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.”
The Cybercrime units in Maharashtra were informed on it and the police investigation had also been launched. Once Twitterati realized what was happening, social media was buzzing with hilarious memes. In fact, people dug up old scenes from Amitabh Bachchan‘s iconic show, Kaun Banega Crorepati and used his patent dialogues to make memes on the situation.
“This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of the 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,” read the first tweet after the cyber -attack, which occurred around 11.40pm on Monday. Minutes later another tweet followed on Muslims in India. The group also tweeted the link of its ‘official’ Instagram page, though unverified, writing “We are waiting for your support.”
“We have informed our cyber unit and Maharashtra Cyber about *hacked* Twitter account of @SrBachchan. They are investigating the matter. Further updates awaited,” the Mumbai Police spokesperson told PTI. The same group had previously hacked Twitter accounts of actors Shahid Kapoor and Anupam Kher among others. Amitabh Bachchan Twitter Account Hacked and seemed to have been restored within half-an-hour.
