The Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his wife as well as a popular Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma have been making headlines for a couple of days and the reason is a video that Virat shared on the micro-blogging site Twitter with caption, “Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling 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. @AnushkaSharma”
The video features a man sitting in a luxury car and throwing some garbage on the road to which Anushka schools him on cleanliness.

Needless to say, Anushka’s motive was good but social media users feel that she should have been a little humble while lecturing the man. Some users are also of the opinion that Virat and Anushka should have asked the man not to do it but recording the video of the act and posting it on social media is no less than defaming him.
Soon afterwards, the concerned person and his mother also took to social media to slam the celebrity couple for defaming the guy and using harsh language.
That’s not all; many Twitter users also took a jibe at Virushka and asked the actress to first teach Kohli not to use cuss words on the field as it’s also a kind of garbage. Another user shared a pic of Virat in which cake is smeared on his face and clothes, calling it a wastage in a country where many people still sleep hungry and can’t afford meals of two times.
Check out some selected reactions:
With due respect. You are a public figure. Did u stop cussing during matches? Did u even asked camera to not show in slo-mo, whenever u cuss in every match. I see lot of young people follow u and find cussing fashionable. Where are ur morals now? Charity begins at home perhaps?

Anushka who will clean the garbage which Kohli throws on field from his mouth? Don't you think 70% of the viewers are children and he should control his garbage too? Safai ghar se shuru kro bhai

जब इतना ही देश की सफाई कि चिन्ता है तो अग्रेजी को भी साफ कर दो इस देश से वो भी देश को गन्दा कर रहा है। मात्रृभाषा बोलने में शर्म आती है आपको
