One of the most enigmatic personalities in the world of cricket right now, Virat Kohli set unattainable standards for his current generation cricketers across all formats. With the bat in hand, this 29-year-old genius fights like a soldier at the border, putting his life on the line to not let his countrymen down.
But the other side of Kohli has always garnered mixed reactions. The Indian skipper across all formats is quite an expressive individual, completely opposite to his predecessor MS Dhoni. He never shies away from having a word or two with the opponents and often gets involved in heated altercations.
There was a time when his aggression was completely off charts, but with time, he has become a much calm and sensible person. Having said that, no opponents can have a go at him and expect to get away empty handed. He always tends to give it back and sometimes, he got penalized for his actions as well.
#5 – Spreading awareness or publicity stunt?
Well, the latest inductee into this hall of infamous tales has been trending on social media in the last few days. Anushka Sharma, who was traveling alongside Kohli in their car had spotted a person throwing garbage on the road and vehemently pounced on that individual.
Amidst this chaos, Kohli had recorded the incident and uploaded it on Instagram. We previously saw Sachin do something similar, but Kohli and Anushka didn’t receive a warm reception. A few people questioned Anushka as to how can she speak so rudely to that individual, who later confessed that he accidentally threw the garbage outside his car.
Netizens have been very harsh on Kohli and Anushka, calling the entire incident a publicity stunt. The recently married couple have been on the spotlight ever since they got together, but this is the first time they hogged headlines for the wrong reasons.
This is a two-way situation which will have varied opinions. Whilst many believe Anushka did the right thing, there’s another section who reckon her reaction was a bit too unethical and ill-mannered.
