Actors and popular celebrities becoming victims of cyber hackers have become a regularity these days and in quick succession, we had seen the social media accounts of Hansika Motwani and Megha Akash being hacked. Fortunately, with the help of their back-end technical teams both the ladies retrieved their accounts, though the authenticity of their profiles was lost for a few hours. Hansika's private photos got leaked and it became a controversy on social media. However, things got settled after sometime.
Now, the latest to join this unfortunate list is actress Pooja Devariya of Iraivi and Aandavan Kattalai fame. It's not her Instagram or Twitter profile, but her personal phone number and Whatsapp that have been hacked. She requested her followers and friends not to respond to any of the messages that came from her number as that could possibly erase all of that particular person's Whatsapp history and conversations. This incident has come as a shocker indeed, showing us the adverse negative sides of technology. Through her Instagram pictures and posts, it is quite evident that Pooja owns an iPhone. Her Kannada film Katheyondu Shuruvagide's director Senna Hedge is one of the victims who thought it was Pooja who had messaged him with the nicest words, when it was actually the hacker. Senna expressed his shock and disappointment through his reply to Pooja's tweet.
On the professional front, Pooja is awaiting the release of Ayogya, that has Vishal and Raashi Khanna in the lead roles. She plays an important character, alongside Parthiepan, K S Ravikumar, Sonia Agarwal and others. This action entertainer, which is touted to be the remake of Jr NTR's Telugu hit Temper, is directed by Venkat Mohan, an erstwhile associate of director AR Murugadoss.
