In the note, doting mother, Soni has asked some serious questions about the policies of this popular social media platform. Along with the note, Soni wrote down a caption in which she highlighted the urgent need of some action from Instagram's side against these abusers, and it can be read as "@instagram I do hope you're reading this and taking some note of it. Because it really gets to the root of the issue. So easy na to let the abusers off the hook. To let yourself off the hook. To let the onus fall on the abused to take action to protect themselves. It's basically and fundamentally ALL WRONG. And it's high time it was stopped at the source itself. And the stinking abusers get their just desserts. Social media has for too long now become the most antisocial media mainly because those running the platforms are not doing enough to prevent abuse. #enoughisenough #stoponlineabuse #stoptheharrassment #stopabuseagainstwomen.” Take a look.

Talking about Alia's bond with her mother, Soni, then in an interview with India Today, Soni had shared how the actress was brought up despite the starry background. She had said, "I did not bring up my child to think that she was a star. If I had treated her any differently, it would have messed everything up. She was brought up normally, like other kids. In a normal house, and it was a normal middle-class life." (Also Read: Sambhavna Seth Shares 'Sindoor' Moment Picture To Celebrate 4th Anniversary With Hubby, Avinash)
