The fake account created in the name of Arjun Tendulkar has around 1800 followers on twitter and that of Sara Tendulkar has 7,493 followers. There are several other fake accounts made in their names including fan clubs which generally target at creating memes. 

In 2018, a software engineer was arrested in Mumbai for creating a fake account of  Sara Tendulkar on the microblogging site Twitter for posting objectionable comments against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar. 

Celebrities and Sports personality kids have always been targeted by malicious users to spread rumors and create controversies over social media. The tweet by Sachin Tendulkar confirming fake accounts in name of his son and daughter will prevent any kind of controversy which could have popped in the future.
