Karan who is busy promoting his upcoming movie Strawberry point got into a real mess after his Twitter account was hacked. It was his luck which saved him, as he was informed well on time about the mishap.
The account was hacked on November 22 during the day. As Karan was busy attending IFFI and the screening of his upcoming flick at film bazaar, he hardly got a moment to notice it. It was only after he received a call from a friend, Karan got to know about the hack. The person informed him about the irrelevant and objectionable content sent to her from the actor’s account.

But is Karan going to take any legal action against the hackers?
“He has no plans to take any legal action as nothing destructive or harmful has been done by the hackers,” Vipul added further.
