This account looked so authentic and so did the message,” he mentions.
The actor has already lodged an FIR and is in touch with the cyber cell. “I not only want to retrieve my account but also want to know who these people are. We have developed a lot digitally, so it will be a big failure for us and the law if we cannot catch these hackers. I believe in the law,” Raut shares.
The actor cites his tiredness as the reason why he put his username and password to the link without giving it a second thought. “I know it was stupid,” he laments, adding, soon he was logged out of his account and it was hacked. “I changed my other passwords. But it is so sad that it happened. These hackers have become such experts. Imagine, they just hacked my social media and it has affected me so much. I mean for an actor a lot depends on social media.
