"Not treat them as commodity for entertainment"- Virat Kohli furious at fan shoots and shared video of his room
India locked horns with South Africa on Sunday at the Perth Stadium in their third game of the "Super 12". But it didn't end in their favour and the Proteas won the game by five wickets. Virat Kohli, who was coming off two back-to-back fifties, also couldn't do much.
He got out after 12 off 11 balls, with two boundaries. But away from the game, he faced a quite unexpected situation and he shared his horrible experience that he had during his stay in a hotel in Perth.
He shared a shocking post on his official social media handle about an unexpected invasion of his privacy. On Monday, Virat shared a video clip of his hotel room on his Instagram account, which shows someone entering his room and exploring all the things.
Without a doubt, Virat is the most followed cricketer in the world and has a massive fan following in all parts of the world. But he has shared the video and showed his disappointment.
He mentioned, "But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I cannot have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and not treat them as a commodity for entertainment."
In Virat's post, Australian opener David Warner also showed his disappointment and wrote, "This is ridiculous, totally unacceptable. Was this @crownperth."
Virat's wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, also shared that post on her Instagram and showed her displeasure and asked fans to not do such kinds of things and let others have their privacy.
The former Indian skipper has shown good form in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. He scored 82* off 53 against Pakistan, 62* off 44 against the Netherlands and 12 off 11 against South Africa. He is just 16 runs behind Mahela Jayawardene (1016) to become the leading run-scorer in the history of the T20 World Cup.
