- Veere Di Wedding is Kareena's first film post pregnancy
Talking to mid-day, a member of the film's digital promotion team said, "We had noticed the development and others had also informed us about it. We immediately reported the hacking to the Instagram headquarters in Mumbai and retrieved [control of the account]. It was hacked for about 90 minutes, allegedly by a resident claiming to be Pakistani."
The member added that the hacker said he would return the account only if he got a role in Veere Di Wedding. "He went live and spoke mainly in Arabic, announcing that he'd return the account if the producers gave him a role in the film," mid-day quoted a member of the film's digital promotion team as saying.
The social-networking company retrieved the account and traced the hacker's origin to the neighbouring country, reported mid-day.
Veere Di Wedding, directed by Shashanka Ghosh, is Kareena Kapoor Khan's first film post pregnancy.
