Haven’t we had enough of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma ever since the debacle of Indian team at the hands of Australia in the recently concluded World Cup? In the last match for Royal Challengers Bangalore, the legendary Indian batsman asked RCB captain Virat Kohli about Anushka.
The question that Mr. Gavaskar asked Virat Kohli was ‘Is she here’? He was referring to the Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. On camera, Kohli clearly blushed. He answered in the positive and added that she would be here.
The match was played at Eden Gardens.
However, Gavaskar never knew what those three words – ‘Is she here’ would land him in on the social media. The legendary batsman was taken to the sword on Twitter. One user on Twitter commented that, that shows how much older generation cricketers like Richie Benaud are missed.
Whatever be the reactions on Twitter, it does not look good to ask such personal questions on camera, especially when the two stars have already become a target by the people.
The timing of the question matters, because just 24 hours before, Kohli had come down hard on people for blaming Anushka for India’s exit from the World Cup.
