Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and Indian skipper Virat Kohli dragged themselves into a new controversy after the littering incident went wrong. Many trolled them for the behavior of Anushka Sharma at the man, who reportedly threw a square-mm plastic on the road. Even the man at the receiving end, Arhhan Singh, came up with a long Facebook post lashing out at Anushka Sharma for her rude behavior. His mother, who is concerned about his son’s safety, also lashed out at Virushka for going against the privacy rights. She went on to term their act as cheap and publicity stunt.

The controversial video of the incident was captured by Virat Kohli and was shared on his Twitter handle that read, “Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Traveling 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.”

The Tweet didn’t go down well with some of the audience on social media and they went on to criticize the celebrity couple. In response, the Indian skipper was quick to come up with another tweet. he wrote, “Lot of people who don’t have the courage to do something like this find it funny. Everything for people nowadays is meme content. Shame.”

However, Virushka got support in the form of the Minister of state for home affairs Kiren Rijiju. He slammed the people, who are criticizing the couple for their ‘publicity stunt.’ Rijiju tweeted that the couple doesn’t need any publicity and all they need is privacy. His tweet read, “C’mon, Virat & Anushka need publicity!! They would rather crave for privacy!! Our conduct reflects our mentality. Civic sense is social ethics and ethical behaviour doesn’t come with wealth & education. Let’s keep India clean. #SwachhBharat”
