Actor-turn-politician Pawan Kalyan is unable to access his Twitter account.

The Telugu super star, who tweets with the @PawanKalyan handle, has been hyper active on social media recently.

His tweets criticising the BJP and what he called 'Hindi imperialism' had made headlines just last month.

However, there have been no tweets from Pawan’s Twitter account for the past 10 days.

"Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan's official twitter account has been blocked. We believe it has been hacked. After checking with experts, severe action will be taken," read a statement from Kalyan's party Janasena.

According to Indian Express, Pawan who was unable to tweet for the last few days, initially ignored it, assuming it may be due to some technical issues. But later he grew suspicious.

The process to recover his account is reportedly underway.

Pawan has nearly 2 million followers on the social networking site.

The politician has recently extended his support in ‘Save Dharna Chowk’ movement at Indira Park led by TJAC. The TJAC is protesting against the Telangana government's move to shift the chowk.

Few days back it was reported that Pawan met CPI (M)’s Telangana state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram.

There have been reports that he is likely to join forces with the joint action committee (JAC) led by the Left parties.

This development came after a 40-minute meeting between Kalyan and CPI (M)’s Telangana state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram on Thursday, reported V Ramu Sarma for The Hans India.

However, Veerabhadram told the newspaper that Kalyan has reportedly said that he would discuss the matter of poll alliance with his party first before coming to a decision.

“We found common cause with Mr. Pawan Kalyan on achieving social justice. He had also offered to come and express solidarity during ‘Mahajana Padayatra’, but could not make it for various reasons. This meeting is part of an attempt to gather the support of all the like-minded people in Telangana for social justice,” Veerabhadram told The Hindu.
