Team India’s ongoing tour of England is no short of controversy. While the media and the fans are criticising them for their abject surrender at Lord’s, the cricketers themselves are short of confidence to face the superior bowlers of the opposition. Meanwhile, ahead of the Test match, the team met the Indian High Commission in London and was also accompanied by the skipper Virat Kohli’s wife and Bollywood Diva Anushka Sharma for which she received a lot of flak on the social media.
She also faced heat for grabbing the vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane’s place who was made to stand in the last row in the photograph. Moreover, the fact that only the wife of the captain attended the dinner also didn’t go down well with many. The members of BCCI and the High Commission also came up with clarifications over the same in the following days but the actress didn’t seem to have liked it all.
Clarification has been made
Anushka Sharma is currently busy in promoting her upcoming movie ‘Sui-Dhaga’ whose trailer was recently revealed. She is acting opposite the male lead Varun Dhawan in the movie. During one of the promotional events, she was asked by the reporters about all the criticism which she had to cop for attending the dinner party of the Indian High Commission in London.
Anushka was pretty clear in her response and went on to say that she completely ignore such trolls and the clarification has already been made by the dignified authority over the matter. She also pointed out the fact that whatever happened in London was well within the guidelines.
“Clarification has been made by whoever had to make it. This was a trolling activity. I don’t react to trolls. Whatever happened, happened within guidelines. Let’s not make a hue&cry about it,” she was quoted as saying by India Today. However, her new movie is set to hit the theatres on 28 September.
