It was a real cop-drama for Prakash Jha as he filed an FIR against an imposter who created fake ids and accounts on various social media under the name of the filmmaker. The impersonator went to the extent of trying to extract information and seeking favours under Jha’s name. When this was brought to the notice of the filmmaker, he immediately filed an FIR at the Amboli police station.
A statement issued by Jha’s office read:
“It has come to our notice that an impersonator having mobile no. 8286549965 has been operating fake an account on whatsApp, LinkedIn and other Social Media links to extract information, telephone numbers and favors in the name of Prakash Jha. This is to inform everyone that I, Prakash Jha do not use any social media platform except Twitter (@prakash27).
