If you are elated over chatting with Life... in a Metro" lead actors, Shiney Ahuja and Shilpa Shetty recently on online chat forum Facebook, here's some bad news. The two have never registered with the website, says their publicist and spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar. "Some other people have registered themselves with the actors' names and have uploaded their pictures. While Shiney is unaware of the forum, Shilpa has never been interested in it, though her sister Shamita does have an account on it," he says.
The impersonators are dragging in unsuspecting surfers into discussions and making new Net friends. Such action not only amounts to cheating on the surfers, but might also spread incorrect information about the celebrities. "It's dangerous as most surfers might think they are chatting with the real Shiney Ahuja or Shilpa Shetty. What the impersonators say can even harm the image and reputation of the actors," adds Dale.
So Shiney and Shilpa fans, beware. Don't fall for the fake in the reckless online chase after the real.
