The bad day for Virat Kohli on the field often turns the worst for Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma as she is often ‘blamed’ for her dear hubby’s bad performance (Really?).
And the same happened on Thursday night when Kings XI Punjab clashed with Royal Challengers Banglore in Dubai. Thursday was a bad day at work for Kohli as his team was bundled for a mere 109 runs while chasing a massive score of 206 set by Punjab. The condition was so bad for Bangalore that at one stage, the team was ailing at 4/3. To add to woes of the Kohli were the two catches he failed to grab on the filed.
While all this was dreadful enough, Kohli also had to bear sexist remark being made on the internet about Anushka as a hoard of people again blamed her for Kohli’s bad performance.
To make the situation even worse, Sunil Gavaskar in the commentary box passed a tasteless remark about Anushka Sharma which didn’t go well with the fans.
Taking a dig at Kohli’s failure with the bat, Gavaskar said: “Inhone lockdown me toh bas Anushka ki gendon ki practice ki hai.” Gavaskar was referring to a viral video of the couple playing cricket during the country’s coronavirus lockdown.
The same comments didn’t go well with netizens who bashed down the trolls for bringing someone’s family into their professional space.
If he was referring to Anushka bowling to Virat in lockdown or the other and the more controversial way, it is wrong to drag someone’s wife in this totally unrelated matter. Moreover, after she’s been targeted for many years. #SunilGavaskar #KXIPvsRCB— Vasu Vashisht (@vasu_vashisht12) September 24, 2020
Though actors don’t care about such trolling most of the time, but making fun of Anushka’s pregnancy is something she might care about. Something she might feel bad about. Coz at the end, they are human too. It’s hight time to change such retarded mentality.
