Hansika Motwani Opens Up On Her Leaked Private Pictures Controversy: I Don't Need To Seek Attention
Actress Hansika Motwani was going through a tough time, when her phone was hacked and her private pictures were leaked on social media. Finally, the actress has reacted on the same and this what she has to say
A few days back, reports were abuzz, that Hansika Motwani’s phone and Twitter account has been hacked. The actress had then somehow managed to recover her Twitter account, using which she informed fans about her leaked pictures. Now, after the controversy, Hansika spoke over her leaked private pictures and hacked phone and Twitter account.
Speaking to Bombay Times, Hansika Motwani has reacted to her leaked private pictures. The actress recalled the time when she noticed that something was wrong. She said, “I noticed that something was wrong with my phone ever since I went to the United States a few weeks ago. But it came as a huge shock to me when I realised that my private information and pictures have been leaked into the public domain. These pictures were taken four years ago and some of them have been smartly morphed by the hackers. I soon figured that my Twitter account has also been hacked and I then alerted my technical team to deal with it.”
Talking about getting trolled and slut-shamed on social media, Hansika told the leading daily, “It was extremely disheartening. To deal with the embarrassment of your private pictures being leaked (some of them morphed) into the public domain is bad enough, and then to see such comments was really hurtful. Certain people had the gall to say that since I anyway did bikini shoots in the past, what’s the big deal if such pictures are leaked? Well, it is a big deal. Firstly, some of the pictures are morphed, which means they are not exactly my pictures. And secondly, when I do a bikini shoot for a film or a magazine shoot, I’m doing it out of my own choice. Here, it is being circulated without my consent, so there’s a big difference between the two. What has happened here is a clear violation of my privacy. This is the price I have to pay for being a public figure I suppose. Fortunately, there has also been a wave of support for me from various quarters. My fans and well wishers started the #IStandByHansika to support me and it definitely helped to know that some people stood by me.”
Phone n Twitter hacked please don’t respond to any random messages . My back end team is working on getting things in control.— Hansika (@ihansika) January 23, 2019
The actress gave it back to those, who thought she did it for publicity. She told Times, “I don’t need to seek attention from anybody. Right through my career, I’ve kept a low profile and that reflects in how I conduct myself on social media as well. That’s just who I am as a person. So if someone sitting in the corner of their room wants to say that I’m doing this for attention, I don’t think that such people even deserve a response. I just feel sorry for them.”
