Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma recently shared video on social media scolding a young man who is throwing litter on the street of the Mumbai.
The video was shared by her hubby Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma received good response from her fans for promoting the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan.
He wrote, “Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness’’.
In the video, Anushka was heard saying “Why are you throwing garbage on the road?” Ârrhan Singh, the man, was visibly taken aback by the sudden encounter and did not reply. “Please be careful, you can’t just throw plastic around on the streets,” she added
While many came out in support of the Indian skipper and the actress, but plenty of them backlashed him also for posting the video without blurring the identity of the litterer. The man in question posted a response to the viral video and criticized her for being rude, angry and impolite.
Arrhan said: “Disclaimer: I have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine…Horrible! So I happened to carelessly Litter a sq mm of plastic while driving! A car passing by rolls their window down and there we have our wonderful Anushka Sharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person! While I’m apologetic for my carelessness , Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli a little etiquette and politeness in ur dialogue wouldn’t have made u a lesser star !! There are all kinds of manners and hygiene .. verbal etiquette is one of them!”
“The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my luxury car… Was way less then the garbage that came out from your mouth… From ur luxury car’s window… Or the trashy mind Viratkohli to shoot and post this online… For whatever gains…Now that’s some SERIOUS TRASH!!!”, he further added.
Even Arrhan’s mother reacted on the video which lead to a problem against the couple. She wrote:
“@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 humanitarianlyvery 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 !”
