Jayasurya's fake and original accounts on Instagram.Instagram

Malayalam actor Jayasurya has become the latest victim to have a fake profile page on social media. The actor has alerted his followers about a fake page in his name on the popular photo-sharing website, Instagram.

Jayasurya has shared the screenshots of the original and fake Instagram accounts on his Facebook page. "Some one is handling a fake profile in my name. Here is the original and fake ones [translated from Malayalam]," the star writes on his social media page.

The impostor has managed to cheat a large number of netizens. The fake page of the Su Su Sudhi Vathmeekam actor has more followers than the original account. While the former, carrying the username Jayasurya Jayan, is being followed by over 1.19 lakh Instagram users, the real profile, with the name Jayasurya555, had just 9,558 followers, at the time of writing this report.
