Celebrities falling prey to fake social media accounts is very common these days, and veteran actor-screen writer Sreenivasan has become the latest victim. Several tweets against CPM were going rounds for two days from a fake Twitter account in his name. 

The actor has finally come out in public and has announced that the account is fake and he does not have any Facebook or Twitter handle. "I don't own a social media account and have not asked anyone to manage one for me. My opinions are entirely different from the ones spreading in my name. I am planning to file a police complaint," the actor told Asianetnews.tv. 

Sreenivasan wondered why these people are attacking him and said maybe they have nothing else to do. This is no small issue, and several fake accounts are being reported these days. I am planning to file a complaint with IG Manoj Abraham, he said. 

The actor also stated that this is not the first time that someone has made a fake profile in his name. "Earlier, I had encountered a similar issue, and then the complaint was filed with the then DGP T P Senkumar. However, Kerala police replied that they are helpless as the account was being managed from the US. However, I will go ahead with legal measures," Sreenivasan said. 

The fake account in the name @Sreeni_theActor was deleted after Sreenivasan stated that he is planning to file a police complaint. The Twitter account had tweets against CPM, especially beef issue and several persons had supported him. As many as 20 tweets were there in the account.
