Mumbai Police asks Alia Bhatt to file a complaint in ‘invasion of privacy’ case
The actor has reportedly told the police that her PR team is in touch with the concerned portal
Alia Bhatt called out a news portal recently for clicking her photos and “invading her privacy” while she was at home. Taking to her Instagram stories, Alia said that the act “crossed all boundaries.” She also tagged Mumbai Police in the post.
Now, the police department, as per a tweet by news agency ANI, has said that they have approached Alia to file a complaint in the matter but the actor has said that her team is in contact with the concerned media house. “Mumbai Police has contacted actor Alia Bhatt & asked her to file a complaint in the matter where a photographer clicked her private pictures & these pictures were published on an online portal. The actor has told police that her PR team is in touch with the concerned portal: Police,” read an ANI tweet.
On Tuesday, Alia took to social media to vent her frustration with photographers trying to click her photos in her private space. “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,” she wrote.
The post garnered support from other celebrities including Arjun Kapoor, Alia’s sister Shaheen Bhatt, mom Soni Razdan, Anushka Sharma, Janhvi Kapoor, Karan Johar, and Swara Bhasker.
