"Before you start pointing your fingers, make sure your hands are clean.", said Bob Marley.
Well, a recent post by Virat Kohli on his twitter account which in the first place was to create awareness has apparently got him and Anushka thrashed. On one hand, Bollywood celebs appreciated Anushka for her 'bold move'; Karan Johar and other celebs applauded her and Ranveer Singh went on to call her a 'legend'! While on the other hand, the man in the video and his mother seemingly 'saw red'.
Not only did the guy who is being 'scolded' by Anushka lash back but also his mother.
The man, Arhhan Singh, took to Instagram to do the same.
It was as such an angry response on Arhhan's part. Though he seems apologetic in the clip, it appears he is offended because the video was posted online.
The offence seems to be even greater when Arhhan's mother takes the lead. This is what she had in store for the star-couple.
@anushkasharma @virat.kohli The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS! You both posted a video for your fans n followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy &you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content you both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers & all the PR backing you... you may be payed for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity As a mother,I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but youve also exposed him to unwanted hostility.... and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways ? I am concerned about my sons SAFTEY !!! how dare you crush somebody's image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following ?How dare you?? If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness , then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane.. you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take action atleast in the lane where you live,to start with, which you haven't . Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers. If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner... and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see! You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally and humanitarianly very wrong. You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field...but on the streets you are just a citizen trying to correct another... DO IT WITH KINDNESS ....fear karma . And just FYI , he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldnt care less,but only because he has a decent upbringing ! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish !
To her, it was a 'cheap stunt in the name of cleanliness' and was 'morally and humanly very wrong'.
It is not the only time but of course, a rare one when celebs were trolled for such acts.
