For once, even I was bowled.
As reported by Pavan Jha, the person who is joked about knowing more about Gulzar than Gulzar himself, and Jitesh Pillaai, the editor of Filmfare, the account @MainGulzar is a fake one.
For the record, here are some tweets from the two.
“Oh shit got conned. @gulzarpost is the real deal. Don’t go by decoys.”
“Dear all @gulzarpost will not be active for a while. I will keep u posted as soon as the legend resumes tweeting. Spread the love.”
“As of now gulzar saab has deactivated his @gulzarpost on twitter. Do not follow any other fake handles please.”
Pavan (@P1J) tweeted:
“@MainGulzar is a fake account.. Just confirmed..”
The confusion was created also because even Jitesh Pillaai posted about @MainGulzar thinking the account was real and retweeted him. I myself was confused by the same and created a post about the account that is now deleted.
