The hackers went one step ahead and posted Mohanlal's pictures and movie posters with messages in Malayalam on the university homepage.
The pro-separatists hacked into Mohanlal's page on Wednesday and uploaded an image of Pakistani flag and also, posted messages and separatist slogans. The site was recovered around 30 minutes later. Things took an ugly turn when fans of the actor decided to retaliate by hacking Lahore university website.
Another section of fans of the actor and Pakistanis took the fight to Facebook, where both the sides hurled angry abuses at each other.
Reportedly, Mohanlal on Wednesday filed an official police complaint in regard to the incident. It is not clear why the group chose to hack the website of the actor who is not into politics. Mohanlal had recently voiced his support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in one of his blog posts.
