While social media has made it easy for stars to connect with their fans, it has also unleashed a dark side. Yeh Hai Mohabattein actor Karan Patel is the latest celebrity to face the brunt of it. Karan took to his Instagram page and shared a few videos and screenshots citing an impostor who has been promising roles for young girls and also a chance of meeting the actor. Karan without knowing about the impostor had promoted him a few years back through a video.

Talking about this he said, "I recognized that video. I shot for this man a few years ago, as it was his idea to bring in new talent in the industry through his acting institute. I thought it to be a noble idea as that would give aspiring actors a chance to get a foothold in the industry."

On further talking about the legal action he said, "What triggered my anger was the fact that he was asking girls to send their nude pictures, promising them roles in a bold show. I can take any b******t, but not this. A woman's integrity can’t be harmed and I won’t leave him for this. I am in touch with my lawyers for an appropriate legal action against him."
