Veteran actor Bushra Ansari was receiving flak for apparently giving open threats to the former prime minister and PTI leader Imran Khan on Twitter. The actor has now clarified that the tweets were from a fake account and she is reporting them to the cybercrime wing of the Federal Investigation Agency.
According to Express News, Ansari submitted an application to FIA's Cybercrime Reporting Centre in Karachi against pages and accounts running in her name on various social media platforms. The Udaari actor claims that there are more than 10 fake accounts running in her name on the micro-blogging website and they are misusing her fame for political incentives.
This may be the first time that Ansari has taken action against such accounts but she has been voicing her concerns about them for a while. Two years ago, she had expressed her anger over the political discussion on Twitter accounts in her name.
Reiterating similar sentiments, she has now maintained that the tweets made against Khan in her name were from her fake Twitter handles and her political views do not align with the said tweets or accounts. Ansari has always been a staunch supporter of PTI.
Last year, actors Saba Qamar Zaman, Sana Javed and Hadiqa Kiani were also victims of impersonation on the micro-blogging site.
On the work front, Ansari can be seen in the popular Wahaj Ali and Yumna Zaidi starrer, Tere Bin.
