Anushka Sharma schooled Arhhan Singh on Saturday for throwing the garbage on the road even as her husband Virat Kohli shot the video and shared it on the social media platforms. Many felt that the step taken by the Bollywood Diva was correct, the way she spoke to him was not at all correct. Moreover, Kohli also was at the receiving end on social media for making the video viral which has not at all gone down well with the mother of Arhhan Singh, Gittanjali Elizabeth Mordecai.
The likes of Kevin Pietersen and Karan Johar lauded the efforts of Kohli and Anushka by calling them the role models even as some of their fans were also in their awe for spreading the awareness. But the Indian captain attracted the ire of his fans who didn’t like the way the man in the question was portrayed in the video. A lot has been already said about the incident and it remains to be seen if the couple comes out with a clarification over the same.
Earlier in the day, Arhhan Singh came up with a detailed explanation about the incident and admitted his mistake about littering on the road. But he didn’t forget to thrash Anushka for not being polite with him. He felt that she could’ve told him the same in a proper manner as well. Arhhan also went on to question the ‘Trashy’ mind of Virat Kohli for shooting the video and making it viral.
Gittanjali has come down hard at the celebrity couple and termed their move as a fake and cheap publicity stunt. She also went on to say that they have shamed her son by not blurring his face while posting his video and is now worried about his safety.
Here’s Arhhan’s Facebook post:
Disclaimer: i have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine… Horrible! So I happened to carelessly…
Here’s her post:
@anushkasharma @virat.kohli The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS! 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 be payed for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity As a mother,I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but youve also exposed him to unwanted hostility…. and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways ? I am concerned about my sons SAFTEY !!! how dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following ?How dare you?? If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness , 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 action atleast in the lane where you live,to start with, which you 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 and humanitarianly very wrong. You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field…but on the streets you are just a citizen trying to correct another… DO IT WITH KINDNESS ….fear karma . And just FYI , he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldnt care less,but only because he has a decent upbringing ! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish !
