Now if you thought you could hide behind your social media handle to troll and stalk at will, you are mighty mistaken. Or so actor Shruti Haasan’s cyberstalker found out. Haasan, the eldest daughter of legendary actor Kamal Haasan, has filed a police complaint against Karnataka-based doctor K G Guruprasad, who has been sending her abusive and derogatory messages via Twitter since September 7, 2016.

According to DTNext, Haasan submitted a two-page complaint to the Cyber Crime grievance cell at the City Police Commissioner’s Office on Wednesday in Chennai through her agent Praveen Antony.

According to the complaint, the stalker made wild aspersions on the actor’s character, personal life and even threatened to stab her if he could get near her through Twitter messages. Haasan has attached screen shots of the messages he had been sending her in her complaint as well. It has been discovered that Guruprasad works as a doctor at the Hassan Institute of Medical Science in Karnataka.

Haasan had earlier been attacked by a stalker in her home in Bandra, Mumbai in 2013.
