Alia Bhatt slams the paparazzi for invading her privacy; Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, and Janhvi Kapoor stand with her

Actors and the paparazzi controversy have always gone hand in hand. Now, Alia Bhatt has also fallen victim to the paparazzi privacy invasion. The actress took to her Instagram on Tuesday to slam paparazzi for invading her privacy at her home. The actress posted a picture of her Instagram story to call out the publication for taking her pictures during her personal time.

She even went on to tag Mumbai police and wrote, “Are you kidding me? I was at my house, having a perfectly normal afternoon, sitting in my living room when I felt something watching over me. I looked up and saw two men on the terrace of the neighbouring building with a camera right at me. In what world is this okay and is this allowed? This is a gross invasion of someone’s privacy. There’s a line that you must not cross, and it is safe to say that all lines were crossed today.”

Taking her side on the matter several Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, and Janhvi Kapoor reposted the same pictures and added their two cents on the matter.

“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 always 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 is basic human right!” Karan Johar wrote.

“This is not the first time they are doing this. About two years ago we called them out for the same reason! You’d think it would have made them respectful of people’s space and privacy. Absolutely shameful! They were also the only guys posting the photos of our daughter despite repeated requests,” Anushka Sharma said.

Arjun Kapoor also wrote, “Absolutely shameless. This is crossing all limits if a woman isn’t 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 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 @Mumbaipolice.”

Janhvi Kapoor added, “I understand showing up to places, and in plain sight doing your job. When there is a mutual understanding of the job of the photographers, and the job and requirements of being a public figure. This stealthiness, zooming into someone’s private space without their consent or even awareness and calling it exclusive as if it’s a journalistic accomplishment is far from it.”
