Twitter wars among celebs aren’t new, but this one, between an alleged handle of TV actor Shilpa Agnihotri and nude yoga guru Vivek Mishra is with a unique twist, whereby the former accused the latter’s account on the microblogging site of being fake.


However, later it turned out that Mishra’s account was real, whereas it was the ‘@officialshilpa’ handle that was fake.

On Saturday morning, the @officialshilpa handle tweeted saying, “Just got in contact with Viveik he’s not even on twitter! (sic)” To this, a Twitter user, @WeLuvTanisha lashed at her saying, “Oh shut up! He has been here long before you! You are a fake account! ... No wonder u have put on pictures of Shilpa available on the internet.. no personal pictures.”

Mishra too is amused. “Of course, my account is real,” he confirms, adding, “I doubted when this person asked me for Asif and Pratyusha’s number, and was using the word ‘dear’ a lot because Shilpa never uses that word. “Not me on Twitter, it’s a fake account,” Shilpa too confirms.

Interestingly, ever since her exit from the ongoing season of TV reality show Bigg Boss, the @officialshilpa handle has been openly showering support for actors Gauahar Khan and Kushal Tandon, with whom she and hubby Apurva were on very good terms while on the show. Tweets against contestants Armaan Kohli and Tanishaa Mukherji, and in support of recently-evicted contestant Sofia Hayat, were also rampant from this handle.
