New Delhi, Mar 28: A day after he single-handedly led his side into ICC World T20 semi-final with his gritty innings against Australia at Mohali, Team India's star batsman Virat Kohli on Monday condemned those who were mocking his ex-girlfriend and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma over social media.
Earlier, last week some over enthusiastic fans 'thanked' the actress for parting ways with the India cricketer.
Virat took to Twitter and Instagram to condemn such acts by a section of fans who were taking a dig at the actress for leaving him (Virat). Some fans held the actress responsible for their favourite cricketer's bad form.
In a tweet from his personal account the Delhi-lad said, "Shame on people for trolling Anushka Sharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity".
In an Instagram message Virat said, "Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport."
Shame on those people who have been having a go at anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what i do with my sport. If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig. And i dont need any respect for this post. Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public. #nocompassion#nocommonsense
