Alia Bhatt trolled for facetiming with Riddhima
A photograph of Alia Bhatt holding the phone standing next to Neetu Kapoor during the funeral went viral on the social media. Alia Bhatt was trolled by the netizens for being insensitive to sentiments of the Kapoor family by using her mobile.

A girl tweeted in favor of Alia Bhatt, the girl tweeted, “#AliaBhatt was not using the phone. She was on a Video call with #RishiKapoor Ji daughter coz she could not reach due to lockdown. (Nothing more worst than this) At least leave them this day alone. Only trolling and mocking people know without clearing facts. Heartless creatures.”
