In the pictures, she was seen sitting on the balcony of her apartment.

The actor took to her Instagram handle and penned a note in her story. She 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?"

Tagging the Mumbai police, she added, "This is a gross invasion of someone's privacy and it's safe to say all lines were crossed dat. @mumbaipolice."

Meanwhile, several Bollywood celebrities came in support of Alia Bhatt and re-shared Alia Bhatt story calling out media portals for ‘invasion of privacy’ 

Alia Bhatt sister Shaheen Bhatt showed her support by writing in her Story, "So it's totally cool to point zoom lenses into people's homes while hiding in neighbouring buildings for "content" now? 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," she added.

Anushka Sharma also talked about being in a similar situation. She took to her Instagram handle and wrote, "This is not the first time they are doing this. About two years ago we called them out for the same reason! You'd think it would have made them more respectful of people's space and privacy. Absolutely shameful! They were also the only guys posting photos of our daughter despite repeated requests!"

Karan Johar was also furious at the incident. He took to Instagram to post, "There is no justification to this absolutely disgusting invasion of privacy!!!! Everyone from the entertainment industry is always for the media and the paparazzi and are accommodating... but there HAS to be a LIMIT... 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!!!"   

Meanwhile, re-sharing the post on social media, Alia's mother-in-law Neetu Kapoor wrote, "This is not right!!!"

Invasion of privacy is a serious issue and can have legal consequences. It is important for every individual to respect the privacy of others and not to engage in someone’s personal activities.
