Social media is filled with fake accounts of celebs. They create the accounts to harass people while some even try to malign the actor's image by posting obscene posts. However, among many, the latest star who has fallen prey to this fake account trend is Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran. He recently took to his social media accounts and slammed an impostor named Sooraj Nair, claiming to be the actor. He was mimicking his voice and using his ID which he says 'it is altogether criminal’. He not only schooled the imposter but also motivated him to use his talent for something good.
He took to his Instagram to share a note saying that mimicry is a great talent but asked the imposter to use the talent for making an illustrious career. He wrote, “Dear Sooraj. It’s alright. I understand that it was all meant to be a harmless joke. But I hope by now you’ve realised that something like this could have very serious repercussions. At one point, I believe more than 2500 people were listening in to you and that a good majority of them thought it was me speaking. I had repeated calls and messages from many people in and outside the industry, and it was imperative that I put an immediate stop to it. I’m glad you admit that it was a mistake. Mimicry is a wonderful art form and I’m sure you know many of Malayalam cinema’s all time greats have found their way into the industry from the world of mimicry. Dream big, work hard and never stop learning. I hope you have an illustrious career ahead and wish you the very best.
In the postscript, he asserted that he is not in the clubhouse. “PS: To all my well wishers and others, I DO NOT condone online abuse. So please stop it. And once again..I’M NOT ON CLUBHOUSE.”
He even shared a tweet on the same, saying, “Claiming to be me on social media is one thing. Claiming to be me, mimicking my voice, and using an ID that closely resembles my insta handle is all together criminal. Please stop this. I AM NOT ON CLUBHOUSE!” ALSO READ: Major: Superstars Salman Khan, Mahesh Babu, Prithviraj Sukumaran To Launch The Teaser Of The Highly-Anticipated Film Starring Adivi Sesh
