So you have been wondering whether to delete your Facebook account or not after all the brouhaha regarding the FB data breach? Well, Farhan Akhtar fans, though we aren't sure if this was also on his mind, but there's some bad news for you.

The Bhaag Milkha Bhaag actor has "permanently" deleted his Facebook account. He made an official announcement today on Twitter. However, there's some consolation as the verified FarhanAkhtarLive page is still active.

"Good morning. This is to inform you all that I have permanently deleted my personal Facebook account. However, the verified FarhanAkhtarLive page is still active," Farhan posted on Twitter.


The 44-year-old actor's move comes after Facebook faced worldwide criticism over claims that Cambridge Analytica, the UK data analysis firm hired by Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, harvested and misused data of 50 million Facebook users.

Farhan has not mentioned any reason for quitting the social media platform.
