Celebrities face a lot of trouble when their social media handles get hacked. It makes them panic as a lot of fans too are connected to them via social media, Mishkat Verma too faced the same when he realized he has become a victim of this cybercrime. Pavitra Bhagya actress Aneri Vajani took to her Instagram account to share this news. Aneri requested the fans not to respond to any messages sent from Mishkat's end thereby alerting them.
Taarak Mehta actor Mayur Vakani AKA Sunderlal was taken by surprise when he realized his Instagram account has been hacked. Sunderlal is one of the most iconic characters on the show. The role is being played by Mayur Vakani who is also the real and reel brother of Disha Vakani AKA Dayaben. When Mayur's Instagram account got hacked people could see the followers are still the same which is 118k, but couldn't see any of his posts.
