There is no end to Amitabh Bachchan's tech-related woes. Few hours after the Bollywood actor reported that his Twitter account has been hacked, he filed a police complaint alleging that he has been receiving "dirty, abusive" SMSes for the past one year. In his letter addressed to the senior police inspector of Juhu police station, the 72-year-old actor requested them to investigate the matter and take action against the perpetrators.

"Through a certain period of time, I have been receiving dirty, filthy, abusive sms messages on my personal phone. I attach herewith photocopies of my mobile screen containing the content that I speak about," he wrote in a letter to the police. Bachchan added on Twitter, saying, "OKAAY.. Plot thickens! Had been getting several really dirty abusive sms for a year.. just handed all of them to the POLICE!"

Earlier, Bachchan announced that his Twitter account, which has 16.6 million followers, has been hacked. The Piku star alleged the hacker planted porn sites in the 'following' section of his account on the micro-blogging site. An upset Bachchan tweeted, "WHOA!... My Twitter handle hacked! Sex sites planted as 'following'! Whoever did this, try someone else, buddy, I don't need this!"

Active on social media, Big B uses different platforms -- Twitter, Facebook and his blog-- to interact with his fans and update them with his projects and personal life.
