She said a woman turned up at her house, claiming she found it via her Instagram Stories.

Following your favourite celebrity online, keeping an excited check on what they're up to and admiring their style, skincare or art is all fine but when you use the same platform to stalk them and show up at their homes uninvited, it becomes a real problem and Noor Bukhari wants you to know that.

Recently sharing a horror story on social media, the former actor spoke about how terrifying it is when fans invade celebrities' personal spaces, showing up to their homes uninvited and admitting they used online applications to find them.

"A lady came to my house yesterday saying she follows me on Insta and after watching my stories she found my house," she revealed. "It's scary because I don't meet anyone. I respect your life and feelings but please don't scare me like this. It makes you a stalker," she added.

We can only imagine how awkward and terrifying the encounter must have been, given that often fans find it difficult to separate celebrities' lives on screen from their very normal lives off screen. Showing up at a stranger's house and expecting them to entertain you is odd, invasive and straight up disrespectful. Not to mention, like Bukhari said, it makes you a stalker. Just don't do it guys.

In 2015, Bukhari tied the knot with Wali, the son of renowned classical singer Hamid Ali Khan, who also starred in and sung for her directorial debut Ishq Positive. However, their marriage turned out to be short-lived as she filed for khula (dissolution of marriage) in 2017.

Her first husband was Dubai-based businessman Vikram. The duo got married in 2008 but called it quits in 2010. The same year Bukhari married director Farooq Mengal. However, their union only lasted four months. In 2012, she married Aun Chaudhry, but they parted ways a few months later.
