The Hush Post: Cricketer Virat Kohli on Saturday tweeted seemingly a pre-planned video clip of his wife actress Anushka Sharma, where she can be seen scolding a man in the backseat of a chauffeur-driven car for littering.
Twitteratti was divided some praising Anushka while others said everything else was okay, but what was the motive behind making the video and posting it on social media.
Now the man in the midst of controversy Arhaan Singh, a managing director of an event management company, said on Facebook that Anushka should have watched her tone. More than 6,600 netizens reacted to his post.
Singh said, “So I happened to carelessly litter while driving. A car passing by rolls down its window and there we have our wonderful Anushka Sharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person. While I’m apologetic about my carelessness, Anushka, a little etiquette and politeness wouldn’t have made you a lesser star. There are all kinds of manners and hygiene and verbal etiquette is one of them. The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my luxury car was way less than the garbage that came out of your mouth. Or the trashy mind of Virat Kohli to shoot and post this online for whatever gains. Now that’s some serious trash (sic),” he said. Many criticised Singh, but many others said that being stars do not give them a natural right to admonish someone like a child, that too in public. The husband-wife-duo could have corrected him in a polite tone.
Virat’s 17-second clip was shot while he and his wife were in their vehicle. Anushka gestured at the chauffeur of a passing car. She asked the man in the backseat, “Why are you throwing plastic on the road? Please be careful. You just can’t be throwing plastic like that on the streets. Use a dustbin.” Virat tweeted, “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.
