Alia Bhatt’s sister Shaheen took to Instagram and shared screenshots of hate messages and rape threats that she has been getting from unknown people. She also warned about legal action against them.
While sharing the screenshots, Shaheen took to Instagram and wrote: “Does this surprise you? Why? It doesn’t surprise me.”
“So, I speak now to those of you who think it’s okay to send me or anyone messages full of hate: If you send me a message with the sole hope (I say hope because I promise you — nothing you say is keeping me up at night) of humiliating, insulting, or bullying me, then the following things will happen: — The messages or comments will first be blocked and reported to Instagram directly.”
Taking it to Twitter, Pooja Bhatt wrote: “Social media or anti-social media? Motivated, misguided, or inherently miserable people target those they wouldn’t normally have access to & those who dare go against popular opinion, unleashing abuse & threats. Ignoring them fuels their frustration & makes them direct hate elsewhere.”
Shaheen’s post comes at a time when the Bhatt family including Mahesh Bhatt, his daughters Pooja and Alia Bhatt and mother Soni Razdan — are targeted for allegedly practicing nepotism in the Bollywood industry.
