It was a moment the entire Twitverse got cheated. Suddenly a twitter id, @maiamkhassan joined the microblogging site last night, and thanked his friend and co-star Shekhar Kapur for inspiring him to create a Twitter profile. “@shekharkapur has inspired me to take up this platform. Would like to share my thoughts and engage in thought provoking discussion.

Fans of the Universal hero and several celebrities including S S Rajamouli, Harish Shankar, Nani and several others were thrilled and officially welcomed him on Twitter. However, Nikil Murugan, the official spokesperson of Kamal Haasan, clarified that the id was fake. “Dear All Kamal sir is not in twitter…the I’[email protected] fake and pls don’t believe.legal action soon to the person who operates..,” Nikil Murugan posted on Twitter. Moments later, whoever was operating the account deleted the profile after taking everyone for a ride.
