Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor passed away on Thursday after a two-year-long battle with cancer. The final rites were performed the same evening, with his wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir Kapoor. 

To bid farewell Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, siblings Randhir Kapoor and Rima Jain were also present. 

Ranbir’s girlfriend Alia Bhatt—who stood by Neetu's side during the last rite rituals—was seen holding a phone throughout the ceremony. 

Alia was face-timing with Ranbir's sister, Riddhima in Delhi. 

However, uninformed netizens brutally criticised Alia was using the phone at the funeral.
