Kareena Kapoor's Veere Di Wedding Instagram Account Was Hacked
And.. the hacker had the most bizarre demand!
There has been a lot of hype around Kareena Kapoor’s comeback film, Veere Di Wedding, and rightly so! The gorgeous actress is back in action, post giving birth to Taimur, and will star alongside Sonam Kapoor, Shikha Talsania and Swara Bhaskar- in this exciting chick flick.
To keep fans updated with all the fun that takes place on set, the team set up a dedicated Instagram account- @vdwthefilm, where they share behind the scene footage from the film. All good till here, right? Wrong!
The Veere Di Wedding Instagram account was hacked a few hours back! According to a report on Mid-Day, the account was hacked for around 90- minutes, when the team was busy shooting for the film. The happening caught their attention when someone suddenly realised that the profile picture of the account was changed to that of a monkey, and it also had a Pakistani flag emoji. The description of the account read: “I am paki pappu bhai”. Haha!
We haven’t even reached the more bizarre bit yet! When the filmmakers asked for their account back, the Veere Di Wedding hacker had a demand that left everyone stunned. He apparently asked for a role in the film to return the reigns.
A source close to the project further revealed, “Once we noticed the development, 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 a Pakistani. He went live and spoke mainly in Urdu, announcing that he’d return the account if the producers gave him a role in the film.”
Now that’s an interesting way to land a role in a film, isn’t it?
