Sudeep cautioned against a fake Facebook account in his name carrying "derogatory" material, including against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
"A fake and fictitious Facebook account is doing rounds on the net, carrying some unwanted derogatory remarks and pictures in my name." The Kannada actor, who shot to national fame with his recently released Telugu movie Eega, also said, "I am in no way associated with it."
"This seemed like a deliberate attempt by some miscreants to tarnish my name amongst public. Pictures available online, and from my tweets have been posted on this fake account to make it look original and to mislead," Sudeep, who has acted in some Hindi films as well, claimed.
According to him, many actors have gone through such pranks and was unwarranted. He also asked that the content be ignored and warned anyone involved to refrain from doing such pranks.
Meanwhile, Sudeep is busy with his upcoming Kannada film Bachchan directed by Shashank. His next release is Varadhanayaka, which also stars Sameera Reddy and Chiranjeevi Sarja.
