He had posted one single tweet that said "On my birthday I am happy to enter Twitter Thank you for all your lovely wishes". Almost sixteen thousand users were duped into becoming followers under the impression that it is the master.

Suhasini Mani Ratnam exposed the imposter by tweeting "@Dir_ManiRatnam is false. Pls spread the word around. There is a person claiming to be @ Dir_ ManiRatnam has tweeted that director ManiRatnam is starting his Twitter account today. It is false. He’s an impersonator.
