Few days ago, actress Alia Bhatt took to her Instagram Stories and the posted a couple of photos of her that were taken without her permission as she sat in her living room.

Alia Bhatt wrote on Instagram Stories, “Are you kidding me? I was at my house having a perfectly normal afternoon sitting in my living room when I felt something watching me… I looked up and saw two men on the terrace of my neighbouring building with a camera right at me! In what world is this okay and allowed? This is a gross invasion of someone’s privacy! There’s a line you just cannot cross and it’s safe to say all lines were crossed today!” She also tagged Mumbai Police in her post.

She hit a media portal for sharing her pics that were allegedly taken by 2 men from the terrace of a neighboring building. Following this, celebrities such as Anushka Sharma and Janhvi Kapoor re-shared Alia’s Instagram Stories and shared facing similar incidents.

Meanwhile, Sushmita Sen went on to support Alia, and then re-shared a post about celebrities having it worse as far as the privacy is concerned.

Sushmita also tagged Alia, her sister Shaheen Bhatt and Mumbai Police. The original note by author Huma Tanweer reads, “In a world made smaller by the virtue of the internet, technology and social media, privacy is but a myth. And if you are a celebrity, you have it worse. With the paparazzi culture at its peak, there is little that can be kept hidden.”

The author further wrote, “Guys, how can you catch someone off guard despite their repeated requests to the media for privacy? When are we going to draw the lines? Are we becoming nothing more than PR Machinery? Our right to privacy cannot be in any manner violated. Media frequently blur the lines between personal and social lives. They substantially confuse the two and the outcome is obnoxious and unscrupulous.”

She further added, “Since we all have a psychological need for privacy, there should inevitably be a dichotomy between a celebrity’s private and public lives. Media should refrain from intruding on this demarcation line. The practice of using such news to boost channel ratings and garner the most viewers is by no means appropriate.”
