Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s father Krishnaraj Rai passed away a few days back and many Bollywood celebs attended the funeral. During the funeral, a distraught Aishwarya was teary-eyed and her crying pictures were circulated online. Ever since, social media has been full of Aish’s pictures.

This has left Alia Bhatt’s sister Shaheen Bhatt pretty upset as she believes that it’s not okay to be a voyeur of death and cash in on someone’s crying pictures. She penned a note saying, “There need to be some lines drawn in the crazy voyeuristic age we live in and I think this is one of those lines. It is not okay to be a voyeur of death. If you come across pictures like this, please don’t click and contribute.”

She posted the note on her social media page. Read the entire note below:

We second her opinion and truly agree with what she has written.

Aishwarya’s father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan had also tweeted, “Death has but one end .. and words cannot define it ..!!”

Aish’s father was suffering from cancer and breathed his last on the afternoon of March 18. He had been in Lilavati Hospital for the past one month, and was undergoing treatment. Many Bollywood celebs like Shah Rukh Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ashutosh Gowariker were seen at the last rites.
