Alia Bhatt’s sister Shaheen Bhatt is one of those lesser known celebrity siblings who like to be away from the limelight. But Shaheen has pretty strong opinions of her own and is not afraid to voice them, oh yes. She has taken over Instagram and boy, she is angry. And she minces no words as she lambasts media for insensitively posting pictures of a teary-eyed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the funeral of her late dad Krishnaraj Rai. In an Instagram post titled, “With respect to the photos of a mourning Aishwarya Rai that are all over the internet” she calls out to all publications who have displayed picture galleries of celebrities including the Bachchans attending the funeral of Krishnaraj Rai over the weekend.
She wrote, “I have never understood the media showing up to high-profile funerals to take pictures of grieving family members. Death is traumatic enough without pictures of you at your most broken being circulated all over social media.” She fumed further, “And why does anyone want to see that? Does anyone really want to click on links that promise us photographs of grief-stricken celebrities crying over the loss of their parent?” She further questioned ethics of journalism as she asked why are media houses being voyeurs of death? Her angry post read, “It is not okay to be voyeur of death. It is not okay to treat a funeral like a party and show up to take pictures of the mourners in their finest whites. If you come across pictures like this please don’t click and contribute. We need to learn how to be human again.” ALSO READ: Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and others leave for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father’s funeral (View HQ pics)
