Fans of the 20-time Grand Slam champion, Federer, though not so much of India captain, Virat Kohli are questioning if Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma can be mentioned as a legend alongside the two.

Earlier, Kohli had taken to social media to post the photo of him and his wife, Anushka. The couple met Federer at Melbourne Park. Despite not playing on Day 6 of the season’s first Grand Slam, Federer was seen posing with the two Indian superstars.
Kohli became the first Indian captain to win a Test and a bilateral ODI series in Australia. Now he seems to be enjoying the on-court action and the atmosphere at the Melbourne Park. Kohli described his trip to the Australian Open as “an amazing way to finish the Australian summer.”

However, Indian fans were quick to react. One said: “First of all, we Indians demand an unconditional apology from you for calling Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma a Legend .That too you called her Legend along with @rogerfederer . Apologize. #legend #AusOpen #Anushkalegend
Kohli and Anushka also watched the defending champion and 14-time Grand Slam winner, Novak Djokovic beat Canadian teenager Denis Shapovalov. Kohli’s posts also suggest that the couple had been at the stands earlier when Serena Williams outclassed Ukrainian teenager Dayana Yastremska.
Anushka had joined the India captain in Australia after the team’s win in the first Test against Australia in Adelaide.
Ever since, the actress was cheering for Team India from the stands during the Test and the recently-concluded ODI series. The husband-wife duo also celebrated their first wedding anniversary in Australia.
