Actor Shahid Kapoor's Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked on Thursday afternoon.

Sharing the news in an Instagram story, Shahid Kapoor wrote: "Hey guys, thank you for the wonderful wishes. My Instagram and Twitter had been hacked. Just got Insta back (and) my team (is) working on sorting Twitter. So please, no it's not me and avoid any interaction."

The first posts to have been shared when Shahid's accounts were hacked were related to the actor's last film Padmaavat. The posts criticised the portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in the movie.

Reportedly, the hackers appear to be the Turkish cyber outfit Ayyildiz Tim, who are also believed to have attacked the accounts of Abhishek Bachchan, Anupam Kher, among others.

Only one post was shared on Shahid's Instagram whereas his Twitter account was filled with RTs of tweets posted by Ayyildiz Tim's account.

One tweet shared the song Mashallah from the film Ek Tha Tiger with the caption "I love you Katrina Kaif."
