Alia Bhatt was seen with a phone in her hand during her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor’s last rites.
This was enough provocation for the trolls to get into action. They have labeled her insensitive, among other things, when in fact she was only doing what her future mother-in-law Mrs Neetu Kapoor urged her to.
A source very close to the Kapoor family informs me, “Rishi’s daughter Ridhima who drove all the way from Delhi to Mumbai couldn’t make it in time for the last rites . Hence Neetuji asked Alia to let Riddhima see her father’s last rites on Face Time. There was nothing ‘rude’ or ‘insensitive’ about this.”
