Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter account has been hacked with hackers replacing his profile photo with that of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The hackers posted a tweet that read, “This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviours of Iceland Republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about a big cyber attack here.”
The Mumbai Police PRO was quoted by news agency ANI, “We have informed our cyber unit and Maharashtra Cyber about hacked Twitter account of Amitabh Bachchan. They are investigating the matter. Further updates awaited.”

In one tweet, the hackers also attacked India as they wrote, “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.”
Bachchan has close to 40 million followers. At the time of writing this story, Bachchan’s account was being restored but his profile image was still missing.
