The actress alerted her friends and acquaintances through a notice shared on her social media account, warning them about the imposter who had been posing as her.

The miscreants behind the phishing scam attempted to dupe recipients by sending messages purportedly from Shabana Azmi, urging them to make purchases on the App Store. Acting swiftly, Shabana Azmi and her team have decided to file a formal complaint with the cyber cell to address this cybercrime of impersonation. The notice also included the contact numbers associated with the fraudulent messages, +66987577041 and +998917811675.
While the specifics of the situation have not been elaborated upon, Shabana Azmi is resolute in her commitment to taking legal action against the impostor and any other individuals involved. On the professional front, Shabana Azmi was recently lauded for her portrayal of the character Jamini in Karan Johar’s romantic comedy “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani.” The film, tackling themes such as cultural diversity and respecting women, was praised for its sensitive handling of contemporary issues.
