Actor Hrithik Roshan complained to the Mumbai police commissioner on Friday after discovering someone had allegedly created a fake email account in his name.
The 40-year-old actor was worried when he was told a girl sent some objectionable photographs to the fake email account presuming it was his account.
Roshan, in a letter to commissioner to Rakesh Maria and the BKC cyber crime division, alleged a person is in contact with his friends and fans using a fake email address email@example.com. Roshan found out about the fake account when he began receiving calls from his friends asking why he was not replying to their emails.
The impersonator is allegedly communicating with Roshan’s fans and people from the film industry pretending to be Roshan.
In the letter, Roshan has written, ‘It is a well-known fact that many a times young girls and boys send their provocative and/or nude pictures and film clips to film personalities in the vain hope it could bring them some work. I am given to understand (sic) that a young girl has sent a lot of such photographs and film clips on the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, thinking that she is sending it to me.’ Roshan also mentioned that if the said material is used wrongly, it can ruin his reputation and the girl completely.
Confirming the complaint, Dipesh Mehta, Roshan’s advocate told HT, “The complaint has been filed. We are meeting the commissioner next week to decide on further course of action.”
