Actress Hansika Motwani, who was recently in the news after her private pictures were leaked online, has confirmed that her phone and Twitter account has been hacked. The leaked pictures had apparently been posted on a random Instagram account, and are believed to be photos the actress had taken while holidaying in New York. The snaps are said to have been removed from the account.

After the report about leak spread, Hansika took to Twitter to confirm it and to warn people not to respond to any messages from her account.

As of now, it is not known if she has filed a police complaint, and she is not the first celebrity to have her account hacked. Just recently, actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aaryan Khan’s Facebook account was hacked, and stars like Amy Jackson, Shahid Kapoor, Esha Gupta and Akshara Haasan have also faced a similar crime.

There have been many reactions to the news that Hansika’s account was compromised, and some have expressed their concern.

On the professional front, Hansika was last seen in the Tamil film Thuppakki Munai. She is currently busy shooting for her upcoming film Maha, a female-centric film by UR Jameel. This film will also mark the actor’s 50th one. She also acted in movie Koi Mil Gaya, which had actors Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta in the lead roles.
