Following the raid of Mumbai police for paid and fake followers scam, some Bollywood actors are unfortunately involved, namely the top divas Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.

There hasn’t been any official announcement yet but some reports said that Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra could probably be called by Mumbai police for an interrogation question about the paid and fake social media followers.

Mumbai police have just conducted a large-scale investigation for the fake and paid social media followers scam, which resulted in a list of 176 high-profile personalities, ranging from Bollywood actors to sports celebrities.

Not sure the police would question all these well-known people or not, but they would surely call out some names for interrogation. Among these celebrities are Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, who are followed by 50.8 million and 55.2 million people on Instagram respectively.

With these huge numbers of followers, Deepika and PeeCee both rank in the list of most followed Indian celebrities on Instagram 2020. However, among the 15 names in the top, only the two divas were claimed to get involved in the fake and paid followers scam.

The Mumbai’s Joint Commissioner of Police also shared that they have discovered up to 54 firms in India who participated in this scam. Mumbai police would ask for support from the Crime Branch and the Cyber Cell to investigate the case further.

A man named Abhishek Dinesh Daude was reportedly arrested for creating fake social media accounts. He was caught red-handed by the Criminal Intelligence Unit of the Mumbai department.

Being questioned by the police, Abhishek said that he worked for a foreign company.
