Virat-Anushka react after privacy breach: 'Where is the line'?
Cricketer Virat Kohli and his wife-actor Anushka Sharma have penned notes on social media after Kohli's privacy was blatantly breached during the ongoing men's T20 World Cup in Australia. On Monday morning, Kohli shared that a fan entered his hotel room, captured a video, and uploaded it online. The furious couple has reacted strongly and called the incident a "violation of a human being."
Why does this story matter?
- Sharma and Virat Kohli have been particularly assertive about their personal space.
- They have also maintained a strong stance about their toddler Vamika, never allowing the media to capture her.
- In fact, when Vamika was clicked during a match in January, the couple had requested fans to not share her photos and respect their decision to raise Vamika away from the public eye.
Kohli penned a long note on Instagram on Monday morning
In the video shared by the ex-Indian men's cricket team captain, his entire room is on full display—right from his clothes to his personal belongings and sneakers collection. The video's caption says, "King Kohli's hotel room." Reacting strongly, the batsman wrote, "This video here is appalling and it's made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. I'm NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism."

'This really is the worst thing,' wrote an exasperated Sharma
Meanwhile, Sharma took to her Instagram Stories to express her fury. Part of her statement read, "Have experienced few incidents where some fans have shown no compassion or grace in the past but this really is the worst thing." "Exercising some self-control helps everyone. Also, if this is happening in your bedroom then where is the line?" wondered the Dil Dhadakne Do actor.
