After the account of Amitabh Bachchan was hacked, the hacker added a tweet through the account which 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 the big Cyber-attack here. As Ayyildiz Tim Turkish Cyber Army.”

A spokesperson of Mumbai Police told PTI that they have informed the cyber unit and the matter was under investigation. The exact time of the attack is not known but it happened around 11:40pm on Monday night.

The hacker also added a second post using Bachchan’s Twitter account targeting the Indian Muslims. The hacker group also tweeted the link of its official Instagram page which was unverified. The tweet read, “We are waiting for your support.”

The Mumbai Police later said, “We have informed our cyber unit and Maharashtra Cyber about *hacked* Twitter account of @SrBachchan. They are investigating the matter. Further updates awaited.”

The account of Bachchan was restored back to normal after half an hour but the actor himself hasn’t said anything regarding this matter. The earlier post, the profile picture along with the cover picture has been deleted and has reverted back to normal.
