Anupam Kher, whose wife Kirron Kher is the BJP member of Parliament from Chandigarh, appears to be one of several hacked Twitter accounts. Among them is Rajya Sabha member of Parliament Swapan Dasgupta, from whom Mr Kher reportedly received a direct message on Twitter.
"Got a DM yesterday from Mr Swapan Dasgupta's account about a link. A first from him. So opened it. Have spoken to Twitter already," Anupam Kher told PTI.
Twitter put out this statement on the hacks:
Our teams are working to resolve an issue affecting a small number of Indian users. We will notify affected account holders directly. Reminder: do not click on links in DMs coming from unknown accounts. For security advice & best practice, read here: https://t.co/Wb8g07EjfD— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) February 6, 2018
Anupam Kher's breakout film was 1984's Saaransh. He has since appeared in many of the most notable films from the last few decades, and has built an impressive international career in movies such as Bend It Like Beckham and Silver Linings Playbook.
