Mumbai: Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress Munmun Dutta, who plays the role of Babita in the show, has become a victim of cyber crime, as someone created a fake profile with her name and tried to malign her image on social media.
Recently, the actress came across some fake comments staged on the recent Pulwama attack as if they were made by her, so she decided to take a legal action against this concerned person.
Talking exclusively to Dainik Bhaskar, Munmun Dutta said, “I have been tweeting a lot about this Pulwama attack and of course I am taking side of Indian Army. I have been consistently tweeting honestly about how our forces are ready to give them(terrorists) the answers back and I am saying this without being politically correct. I am sure somebody is not happy with my posts and so they took out one picture from my Instagram account and made a collage with a Hindi quote written against our country. The post is completely against the Indian Army and supporting Pakistan. And guess what, I have never written any post so far in Hindi; I have always expressed myself in English. I cannot even write in Hindi. The picture was posted on some random website which got circulated widely.”
She further added, “Two days back, a few of my friends showed me this post which I ignored initially assuming that people can differentiate between a real and a fake post. Surprisingly, that random website has a huge number of followers and many of them did not even bother to cross check or verify the post. They started back lashing me on my social media account. I started getting lots of abusive messages, which I decided to not ignore.”
Post this incident, Munmun Dutta asked for help from the Mumbai Police and has decided to take legal action against this fake id creator. Talking about it, the actress said, “Immediately, I sent a message on Twitter to Mumbai Police for the help and thankfully, within a few minutes I got a call from them. I told them the entire incident wherein they asked me to file the complaint which I did. The search for this person is already on; let’s see how the things take on further.”
Munmum is quite active on social media.
