Filmmaker Onir has revealed that his Instagram account has been hacked and that he is yet to regain control of it. In a Twitter post on Friday, the director said it has been 48 hours since his account was compromised.

“Been more than 48 hours since my Instagram has been hacked. At least I am back on Twitter after 24 hours, thanks to @TwitterSupport but @instagram @Meta seems to take ages to act in spite of me sending all verification details,” the 52-year-old director wrote.

On Thursday, the filmmaker had tweeted that his Twitter account had also been hacked and it took him 24 hours to get it back. In a follow up tweet, Onir had asked his followers to not reply to any direct messages from his Instagram account as it was compromised.
