On Saturday, Virat Kohli uploaded a video on his twitter handle that shows wife Anushka Sharma scolding a man, sitting in the back seat of a luxurious car, caught littering the street! Anushka Sharma, being the face of the campaign for PM’s â€œSwachh Bharat Abhiyanâ€, truly showed up the spirit by bothering to ask this man to stop throwing garbage on the street!
Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness. @AnushkaSharma pic.twitter.com/p8flrmcnba

Post this incident, the man with the nameÂ Arhhansingh on Instagram lashed out at the couple! Now, it is Arhhansingh’s mother Gittanjali who has taken her social media to accuse and slam Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma for violating the privacy of her son! She wrote:
“@anushkasharma @virat.kohli The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS!Â You both posted a video for your fans n followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy & you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content you both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers & all the PR backing you… you may bepayedÂ for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicityÂ
As a mother, IÂ would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but you’veÂ also exposed him to unwanted hostility…. and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done butÂ haveÂ no proof ofÂ anyways ?Â I am concerned about my sons SAFETYÂ !!! how dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fanÂ followingÂ ?HowÂ dare you??
If you both really cared or bothered aboutÂ cleanliness,Â then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane.. you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take actionÂ atleastÂ in the lane where you live,toÂ start with, which youÂ haven’t .Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers. If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner… and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see!
You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally andÂ humanitarianlyÂ very wrong.
You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field…but on theÂ streetsÂ you are just a citizen trying to correct another… DO IT WITH KINDNESS ….fearÂ karma .
And justÂ FYI ,Â he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldn’tÂ care less, butÂ only because he has a decentÂ upbringing !Â Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones toÂ talkÂ and treat people as youÂ wish !”
Is being responsible citizens like Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have been, violation of somebody’s privacy?? What do you think?
Stay tuned for more updates!
