Kamya Panjabi, much like her colleagues in the television industry, extended her support to Ekta Kapoor’s Lipstick Under My Burkha, on social media. She posted a bare back picture and captioned it: “They Said that don’t be that woman …The that other woman..the divorced woman .. the single mother woman .. But I am that woman ..Every time I put in my lipstick on, I smile. because I am being true to myself . Whether the world agrees or not I have made my own don’t.. Don’t you…”

However, after a few hours, the picture was deleted from her account and that led to speculation that she’s backed out from the campaign for the film and that she changed her mind about the bold photo. To end all doubt, Kamya took to Twitter to reveal that her account was hacked and the hacker deleted the photo, as till date she has never removed any posts from her account. As per sources, she will take the help of police to find out about the hacker.

As per Kamya, this is the photo that the hacker removed from her account.

Kamya gave out details about what happened. “Open the app. Picture has been removed. News articles claiming my unsure mind led to impulsive upload of nudity and hence took it off. Never posted something I never believed in. Never took off something I once posted. Wore my heart and scares on my sleeves with pride. Happy hacking happy hating.” She even put a hastag, ‘I know you know my password’. When contacted, the actor said that she has already given out all the details on Twitter and doesn’t want to talk more about this.

This is not the first time an actor’s account on the photo sharing app has been hacked. Early this year, Nia Sharma’s Instagram account was hacked and she had reported it to the cyber cell. In Bollywood, actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar and Shruti Haasan also faced the same thing.

Dinner with my winner....!!!!
