Amitabh Bachchan was in for a rude shock when he found out that his Twitter account has been hacked and he was now 'following' sex sites. The Bollywood superstar, never at loss for words, took to the Twitter handle (@SrBachchan) and wrote, "WHOA !..My Twitter handle hacked ! Sex sites planted as 'following' ! Whoever did this, try someone else, buddy, I don't need this !"

It appears no other damage was done and 72-year-old Bachchan immediately unfollowed the sites. The actor has a dedicated fan base on Twitter with 16.6 million followers. He is India's most followed celeb on social media and is also active on other channels, including Facebook and blogs. Bachchan refers to his fans as 'extended family'.

The actor is awaiting release of Wazir, which also stars Farhan Akhtar. The star's last film, Piku, was a critical and box office success.
