Capturing candid photographs of Celebrities is truly what a paparazzi job is, but clicking them without their consent by invading their personal space and calling it exclusive pictures is completely a big “NO!”. Nobody likes when a person tries to intervene in the vicinity of their private boundaries. A celeb might have an expensive lifestyle but maintaining privacy is their utmost priority.
Just like that, these are the 5 times paparazzi crossed their lines with Bollywood Stars.
1. Alia Bhatt
Recently, the Brahmastra actress Alia Bhatt was a victim of a privacy invasion by paps when she was chilling at her home, having her me time. Just when two photographers clicked her pictures without her consent and uploaded them online.
Alia slammed the photographers and called out the media as she took her Instagram and shared the same pictures. She wrote, “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 neighboring building with a camera right at me.” “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! @mumbaipolice” she added. She even tagged Mumbai police to look into the matter.
In her support, many other Bollywood celebs shared her Instagram story and criticized the happening. Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and many others expressed their thoughts. Karan Johar wrote, “There is no justification to this absolutely disgusting invasion of privacy” “This is about anyone’s right to feel safe in their own homes. This is not about actors or celebrities it’s a basic human right.” he added.
2. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma
Virat and Anushka were sitting in their balcony having a conversation when again a photographer clicked their pictures without their consent. Anushka wrote, “Despite requesting the said photographer and the publication, they still continue to invade our privacy. Guys! Stop this right now.”
3. Anushka Sharma’s and Virat Kohli’s daughter Vamika
Anushka and Virat were very clear in their words that they need privacy for their daughter. Despite the saying, baby Vamika’s pictures were leaked as soon as they spotted her in public. Anushka again left a note seeking privacy. Anushka wrote, “We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn’t know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. We would really appreciate if Vamika’s images are not clicked/ published for reasons we have explained earlier. Thank you!”
4. Jaya Bachchan
Regardless of the repeated saying by actress Jaya Bachchan for not invading her privacy, paps just unheard of it. They kept on clicking the actress’ pictures making her lose her control as she said, “Please stop clicking my pictures.”
5. Little Taimur Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor along with their son baby Taimur always greet the photographers and pose for clicks. Taimur Ali Khan is often clicked by the paps but the paps made things so out of control that even Taimur asked the photographers to stop.
Paps are invading celebrities’ personal space despite their seeking privacy at regular intervals.
