Shock was the apt word to describe the sentiment that streaked through Twitter world, when social media junkies woke up to a tweet by Indian film director Mahesh Bhatt, catching him on an abusive rant of C-list celebrities such as Poonam Panday, Kamaal R Khan and porn star Sunny Leone.
The post read: “@ghantaasingh @kamaalrkhan @SunnyLeone @iPoonampandey #Aap******Hain.”
Shortly after, sleaze model and former contestant of the reality TV show “Bigg Boss 5”, responded to the tweet with disbelief, saying: “Guess this words can’t be of @MaheshNBhatt as he is a gem of person and a gentleman! #HACKED [sic].”
It seems that Pandey’s declaration was spot on, when Bhatt himself took to the microblogging site later, tweeting: “Someone has hacked my account and used it to abuse Kamal Khan and few others. This is dangerous.”
And it is surprising that Bhatt would abuse Leone in any ways considering the filmmaker is all set to enter the “Bigg Boss 5” house with a plum role in his upcoming, 'Jism 2'.

The police registered an FIR against actor Salman Khan, his bodyguard Shera and five others at Kanpur's Kakadeo police station.
The report filed against them was for allegedly assaulting anti-corruption activist Omendra Bharat and chief general secretary of Jan Rajya Party.

Jan Rajya Party activists later lodged a complaint with the police seeking action against Khan and his bodyguards but no FIR was lodged.
A case has been registered against Salman, his bodyguard Shera and five others.
