It seems that the Twitterati have found their new scapegoat for all the brimming trolls. This time the picture of three B-Town mourners smiling at the funeral of Krishna Raj Kapoor has attracted the attention of netizens. Actors Rani Mukherji, Aamir Khan, and filmmaker Karan Johar are being criticised by the cybernauts after a video of them sharing a light moment went viral. The video footage appears to be shot outside Krishna Raj bungalow, the Kapoor residence in Mumbai’s Pali Hill.

Krishna Raj Kapoor died on Monday, and while many celebrities were spotted attending the funeral, this viral video is making rounds on the internet. According to the furious Twitterati, this wasn’t an occasion to smile or laugh about.

Comparing it to a scene from Madhur Bhandarkar’s 2005 release Page 3, a Twitter user shared the video and wrote, “Looks straight from film Page 3 at Krishna Raj Kapoor funeral... See Karan Johar laughing with Rani Mukerji and Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt. #Shame... But nobody will condemn for sure." “These filmi idiots are hypocrites of the highest order. One can't expect any civility from them,” added another user.

While some were busy criticising the actors, there was a section of internet users who expressed their support to these actors. A thoughtful twitter user wrote, “I don't think there is any reason to mourn here. She was 87 and lived her life quite well. She was sick for the last few days and people were aware that the moment has come. Obviously, people close to her will feel the void in their life but that's it.”

Here are some of the tweets:

In fact, Aamir Khan and Karan Johar were among the celebrities who posted their condolence on the sad demise of Krishna Raj Kapoor. 

Trolling celebrities on such occasions has become a common practice all over the social media. Not long ago, Saif Ali Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Abhishek Bachchan were criticised for cracking a smile at the funeral of actors Shashi Kapoor, Sridevi and Rajan Nanda respectively.
