Sidharth Malhotra fan allegedly scammed by fan page; the actor responds

A fan of Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra has accused a fan page of scamming her out of 50 lakh rupees.

Minoo Vasudeva, based in the US, claimed on social media platform X, with the handle @desi_girl334, Aliza and Husna Parveen, two individuals who manage the fan page, deceived her by fabricating stories about the actor’s life being in danger.

Reportedly, she was made to believe that the person endangering the actor was his wife, Kiara Advani, who “exploited him physically, sexually and financially along with her goons Karan Johar, Shashank Khaitan, Apoorva Mehta & Manish Malhotra”. Vasudeva also claimed that the admins told her Kiara had forced Sidharth Malhotra into marriage by threatening his family and performed black magic on him.

Aliza allegedly asked Minoo to help her “save Sid” and introduced her to a fake member of Siddarth Malhotra’s PR team, who in turn introduced her to an informer. She would pay them weekly charges of 1000 INR to get inside information and speak to the actor, buy him gift hampers and save him from “death or torture”.

She also shared screenshots of the chats where she spoke to “Fake Sid”, where he complimented her dance videos, thanked her for a (photoshopped) gift hamper she sent him, and vented to her about his struggles with Kiara.

She concluded her post by demanding justice for herself and anyone else who was scammed in such a manner:

“Honestly, my money was stolen for the wrong reasons… I DO want it back. I know I said I didn’t at first, but Sid, if possible … please order these women to return the stolen money. But more than this, I want justice for every innocent fan cheated by these women in the name of Sidharth Malhotra. If they DON’T agree to return the money, then Sid, meri jaan, my beloved, I trust you will give them the punishment they deserve.”

Minoo’s posts blew up like wildfire across all social media platforms, and Bollywood fans began tagging the actor to urge him to respond to these concerns.

In response, Sidharth Malhotra urged people to take caution in the face of such “fraudulent” activities and assured his fans that neither he, his family nor his team support such practices.

He further wrote: “I want to assure everyone reading this that neither I nor my family or team support any of this. I urge all of you to exercise caution when dealing with such matters. If you receive any suspicious requests, report them to the appropriate authorities and avoid spreading false information. My fans have always been my biggest strength and your trust and safety are my top priorities. Big Love and Hug!”
