A few days after the demise of filmmaker Raj Kaushal, his wife and actress Mandira Bedi, on Sunday morning, stepped out for a stroll in Mumbai.
A video of the actress was shared by a paparazzo online where she was seen walking with a family member. Minutes after the video was shared on Instagram, several netizens lashed out at paparazzi for 'invading her privacy in difficult times'.
A user wrote: "Do you guys have any sense of what to cover and what not to.. leave them alone man."
Another netizen commented: "Let her live her life! She needs to breathe!"
"Yaar do u guys have some shame left... at least leave her alone in this time...shame on you," read a comment.
Mandira's husband, filmmaker Raj Kaushal reportedly succumbed to a heart attack on June 30.
Friends, followers and industry colleagues mourned his untimely demise on social media and expressed condolences.
After the demise, Mandira has also been a victim of trolling and hatred on social media after photographs surfaced showing her breaking stereotypes by performing her husband's last rites, which male members of a family are traditionally expected to perform.
Last week, Mandira shared photographs with her late husband where she they can be seen happily posing with glasses of red and white wine.
The actress did not caption her photos but only used a heartbroken emoji instead.
Before posting pictures of Raj Kaushal, Mandira deleted her profile icon on Instagram and replaced it with a black screen.
Mandira and Raj Kaushal tied the knot in 1999 and have a son named Vir. In 2020, the two adopted a 4-year-old girl and named her Tara.
