Actor Hansika Motwani has finally broken her silence on the leaked pictures that shocked her fans recently. She talked to a leading daily and mentioned that it was disheartening to see her private pictures getting circulated on social media, some of them were even morphed. However, Hansika felt more disappointed realising the kind of comments the photos received with some people even saying there’s no harm in the leak when she has already many bikini photoshoots in the past.

In her interview with Times of India, the actor said, “It was extremely disheartening. To deal with the embarrassment of your private pictures being leaked (some of them morphed) into the public domain is bad enough, and then to see such comments was really hurtful. Certain people had the gall to say that since I anyway did bikini shoots in the past, what’s the big deal if such pictures are leaked?”

She added that she could sense something was wrong with her phone when she was in the US a few days back. Hansika explained, “I noticed that something was wrong with my phone ever since went to the United States a few weeks ago. But it came as a huge shock to me when I realised that my private information and pictures have been leaked into the public domain. These pictures were taken four years ago and some of them have been smartly morphed by the hackers. I soon figured that my Twitter account has also been hacked and I then alerted my technical team to deal with it.”

The actor went on to say that she has always maintained a low profile and would never crave attention this way. Hansika said, “I don’t need to seek attention from anybody. Right through my career, I’ve kept a low profile and that reflects in how I conduct myself on social media as well. That’s just who I am as a person. So if someone sitting in the corner of their room wants to say that I’m doing this for attention, I don’t think that such people even deserve a response. I just feel sorry for them.”
