She has filed a complaint with the Khar police and is pursuing legal action against an unknown person who made fake profiles on WhatsApp, Instagram, and email in her name. The culprit allegedly used these accounts by falsely promising work opportunities and demanding money from people from Bollywood.

When a designer she had collaborated with got a WhatsApp message from an unidentified phone in January, the actress learned about the impersonation. Posing as Vidya Balan, the imposter expressed interest in collaborating and recommended further discussion if the designer was keen.

The actress was notified right away by the designer that a person acting as she had texted him. Balan was alerted by other industry connections about similar operations taking place on Instagram and via email, according to a Khar police official cited by the popular news portal.

Based on the complaint, the police have taken action against the unidentified impersonator, citing the relevant sections of the Information Technology Act. They are currently conducting additional investigations.

Vidya Balan will reprise her role as Manjulika in the popular series Bhool Bhulaiya. Kartik Aaryan confirmed the report last week by posting a montage of his performance from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2's "Ami Je Tomar" dance and Vdiya Balan's performance from the same movie. The much-awaited third entry in the popular Bhool Bhulaiyaa series is scheduled to be released soon. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which starred Kiara Advani and Kartik Aaryan and included a standout performance by Tabu, was released in 2022 and brought in over 180 crores of rupees in India. Rajpal Yadav starred in the movie as well.
