Some private photos of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt are becoming increasingly viral on social media.

Now actress Anushka Sharma and actor Arjun Kapoor have also supported Alia.
Mumbai: Private photos of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt are going viral on social media. Alia Bhatt herself has revealed that two unknown persons have not only clicked these photos without her permission but have also uploaded them on social media.
Alia Bhatt has called this act extremely shameful and has demanded the Mumbai Police to take action against these people. The problem of tampering with the privacy of Bollywood stars is not new. But for some time people have crossed all limits. Now other Bollywood stars have also come in support of Alia Bhatt. From Arjun Kapoor to Anushka Sharma have also reprimanded the people who made private photos of Alia Bhatt viral and termed it extremely shameful.
Supporting Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma also wrote on her Instagram story, ‘These people have done this before, about two years ago these people did the same to us. Do you think that by doing all this you will earn respect? Similarly, they had secretly taken our photos, even then we had given them a similar class. This is a very shameful thing. These are the same people who clicked the photos of our daughter, while we had already asked to keep the privacy in mind.
Alia Bhatt’s 2 States co-star Arjun Kapoor also re-posted the actress’ Instagram story and he wrote: “Absolutely shameless. This is crossing all limits if a woman isn’t feeling. Safe in her own home forget if she is a public. Figure or not for a second. Any sane person who takes photographs of public figures for a living needs to know that this is pathetic conduct and these are people in the media we have trusted and shown implicit faith in believing they are here to do a job not to make women feel unsafe or invade one’s privacy. This is nothing short of stalking.” The actor also tagged Mumbai Police in his post.
Alia Bhatt’s sister and author Shaheen Bhatt tooo called out the publication and she wrote in her Instagram story: “So it’s totally cool to point zoom lenses into people’s homes while hiding in neighbouring buildings for “content” now? Grown men. With cameras. Hiding across the road. Taking surreptitious photos of an unaware woman. Without her consent. In her home. The fact that the person in the photo is a celebrity does not somehow make this okay. If this was any other situation, with any other person – this would be considered harassment and a complete assault on privacy. Which is what it is. The lack of basic human decency is honestly terrifying.”
Filmmaker Karan Johar, who worked with Alia Bhatt in her debut film Student Of The Year, wrote this in his statement, calling out the media house: “There is no justification to this absolutely disgusting invasion of privacy. Everyone from the entertainment industry is always for the media and the paparazzi and are accommodating … but there HAS to be a LIMIT…. This is about anyone’s right to feel safe in their own homes! This is not about actors or celebrities it’s a basic human right.”
Earlier, Alia Bhatt and her husband Ranbir Kapoor had especially met the paparazzi in Mumbai along with Neetu Kapoor and had requested the paparazzi for privacy and asked them not to click pictures of their daughter Raha.
