"My Twitter account has been hacked. Just got few calls from friends in India about it. I am in LA and it is 1 am," Kher told PTI over a text message. The Big Sick actor said he received a link from Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta in a direct message, a first ever from him yesterday, which he clicked upon.

Dasgupta's Twitter account is said to have been compromised by Turkish Pro-Pak hackers.
"Got a DM yesterday from Mr Swapan Dasgupta's account about a link. A first from him. So opened it. Have spoken to Twitter already," Kher added.

A message reading 'Caution: This account is temporarily restricted' is currently being displayed when one visits the actor's account.
