A everyday Mumbai guy, working in a regular job as a clerk in an educational institution has found himself in the eye of a storm all due to a case of mistaken identity. The man, who goes by the name of Sagar Surve, has been left with no alternative but to block as many as 150 mobile numbers, and, eventually, switch off his phone after being subjected to a volley of abusive calls, post his number being leaked due to its close resemblance with that of actress Rhea Chakraborty. The situation would've been bizarrely funny if only it wasn't so distressing for the individual who has found himself at the receiving end for absolutely no fault of his.
As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Sagar Surve mobile number differs from that of Rhea Chakraborty's by a solitary digit, leading to it to being leaked on online portals and social media, following which he has been been receiving extremely harsh calls, replete with foul language, and being harassed nonstop. Though he initially didn't pay much heed to the calls and simply dismissed them as wrong numbers as it never hit him at the time that the Rhea being asked for was actually Sushant Singh Rajput's girlfriend, Sagar had to ultimately switch off his phone when the frequency of the calls from several unknown grew at an alarmingly exponential rate.
“I started receiving messages, voice calls and video calls on WhatsApp. People asked me to send them a photograph of myself when I told them that they were mistaken. I tried to ignore the calls but it only worsened over the next three days,” he was quoted saying in the report.
If the rigmarole surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput's alleged suicide wasn't enough, it has now spilled over to disturbing the peace and calm of common folk.
