As per reports, most of the posts, sharing her leaked pictures, were removed from Twitter. However, her pictures are still available on Instagram.
The leaked pictures show Hansika dressed in swimsuits in most of them. The picture seems to have been clicked during her recent trip to New York. The incident came as a huge shock to not just the actress but also her fans. As of now, she hasn't filed any complaint on the matter.
Earlier, a nude video of a lookalike of Hansika had surfaced on the internet. However, the actress had issued a statement saying that she wasn't the girl in the video and it was a case of mistaken identity.
On the professional front, she is currently working on UR Jameel's directorial Tamil film 'Maha', which is also her 50th film.
