“ILLEGAL IMAGES”: Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor suing paparazzi

Alia Bhatt, a Bollywood starlet, recently chastised photographers for invading her privacy by photographing her when she was in her living room, unaware to the individuals taking her images. Several celebs came out in support of Alia when she posted a letter about the event on social media. Now, husband-actor Ranbir Kapoor has spoken about how they are legally dealing with the whole matter, calling it unpleasant.

Ranbir spoke candidly about the event in an interview with Miss Malini, describing it as an invasion of privacy. You are not allowed to shoot inside my house, and anything may happen within my house; it is my home. It was completely unnecessary. We are handling it legally according to the right procedures. I don’t want to dwell on it too much, but it was something quite repulsive.

We respect the paparazzi, he continued. The paparazzi, in my opinion, exist in our environment. They collaborate with us, and we collaborate with them. But, situations like these force you to your limit and make you feel really embarrassed of the person who did it.

Are you kidding me? Alia Bhatt had published a composite of two images supplied by a news organisation. I was at home, enjoying a very ordinary afternoon in my LIVING ROOM, when I sensed someone or something observing me. Two men with a camera were on the terrace of the building next to mine when I looked up.
