There has been no new post on the filmmaker's Instagram account since he tweeted about his account being hacked but several Instagram stories have been uploaded on his feed, including a selfie of Mr Zafar. Whether Ali Abbas Zafar has regained access to his account or not has not yet been confirmed.
Earlier this year, Twitter accounts of celebrities like Abhishek Bachchan and Anupam Kher were hacked allegedly by a pro-Pakistan group of Turkish hackers, who posted messages like 'I love Pakistan' from the hacked accounts. According to PTI, the group of hackers were suspected to operate under the name Ayyildiz Tim, who tweeted an array of tweets from Mr Bachchan's account and changed the moniker from juniorbachchan to juniorbachchana. This is what the actor tweeted after his account was restored:
Yes, yes my account got hacked. Quite chuffed that they thought me interesting enough actually . All sorted out now and back to normal. Well.... As normal as it can get.— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) February 7, 2018
