Shehnaaz Gill refused to talk about paparazzi being ‘trolled’ after Alia Bhatt photos from home surfaced online
Shehnaaz Gill recently attended an award function in the city, where the actress was asked about her take on the invasion of Alia Bhatt’s privacy by paparazzi.
Recently Alia Bhatt slammed a media portal for sharing her pictures from inside her house. The ‘privacy breach’ has become a topic of discussion among the film fraternity. Many Bollywood celebrities, like Anushka Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Janhvi Kapoor, and others too shared their thoughts. Now, during a recent media interaction at the Lokmat Digital Creator Awards, Shehnaaz Gill was asked to give her opinion about the same. Although she refused to comment on paps being trolled for the incident, she said that the media has helped her a lot in her career.
“Mai toh media ki wajah se hi bani hun, mujhe toh hamesha media ne hi highlight kiya hai. (I am here because of the media, it’s the media alone that has always highlighted me.),” Shehnaaz said. She added, “Lekin agar aap koi trolling ki baat karoge, toh uske liye mere pass koijawab nahi hai. (But if you talk about trolling, I have no answer for you.)”
Alia Bhatt, in her Instagram stories, slammed the media house that posted her ‘unauthorised’ pictures. “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? 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! (sic),” she wrote.
