"it’s safe to say all lines were crossed today!”

A furious Alia Bhatt slammed the paparazzi for taking unauthorised pictures of her in her home.

Two pictures of Alia sitting in her living room were taken by paparazzi from a building opposite. The images were shared by ETimes on Instagram.

Calling out the “gross invasion” of her privacy. the actress re-shared the post on Instagram 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 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!”

Soon after, her sister Shaheen Bhatt asked if it is “cool” for people to point their camera lenses into homes while hiding in neighbouring buildings “for content”.

She said: “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.”

Alia’s mother Soni Razdan called for action to be taken and wrote:

“Shocked and dismayed at this blatant disregard for a person’s privacy. Are we really turning into ‘that country’ now?

“Where all our cultural norms simply cease to exist when it comes to ‘getting the picture’?

“Hope someone can address this and fast!”

The incident prompted fellow Bollywood stars to offer their support, with some recalling their own experiences.

Arjun Kapoor said: “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 Mumbai Police.”

Revealing that she faced a similar situation at the gym, Janhvi Kapoor said:

“This is disgustingly intrusive. This publication has repeatedly done things like this.”

“Including, despite my continuous requests, photographed me unaware inside the gym I go to while working out through the glass door.

“In a space that is supposed to be private, where one does not anticipate getting photographed.”

Meanwhile, Mumbai Police has asked Alia Bhatt to file a complaint. The actress responded that her team is in contact with the media house.
