Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor were snapped at the Mumbai airport leaving the city to the Maldives for vacation. The couple went away amidst the coronavirus lockdown in Maharashtra that was announced last week due to a sudden rise in COVID-19 cases.

After the photos of Kapoor and Bhatt surfaced on the internet, citizens trolled and called them out for running away from the chaos instead of not using their influence to help people during such trying times.

“Coronavirus cases are increasing in India and then people like Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor will blame a common man for increasing positive cases. They are going to the Maldives and then will advise others to stay home,” wrote a user on Twitter.

“What fine examples these stars are setting!!” commented another Twitter user.  Another one wrote, “We are in pandemic and people are dying but these people have no shame.”
