Virat Kohli slammed on social media for his ‘Quit India’ comment

Virat Kohli slammed on social media for his ‘Quit India’ comment

Earlier, the India skipper was trolled on social media after he asked a fan to leave the country if he did not like to watch Indian cricketers in action. The fan mentioned that there's nothing special about Kohli's batting and that he prefers watching the Australian and English batsmen weave their magic. He is also the only player in the country who rests from nearly every other tournament the team participates in.

In his reply, Kohli says: "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then". Get your priorities right, ' Kohli is heard hitting back.

As it turns out, the Committee of Administrators - a two-member panel appointed by the Supreme Court to oversee the operations of the BCCI - have promised to look into the controversial video that is doing rounds on social media.

"Kohli is highly arrogant and that is one trait which is his Achilles heel", tweeted another user. "Power and fame tend to attract those people who agree with you and reinforce your opinion because they benefit from proximity to fame and power", read another tweet from Bhogle.

Married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, Kohli is the biggest name in Indian cricket and his face is plastered on billboards across the cricket-obsessed country of 1.3 billion. Kohli was responding to his fans via promotional video recorded for his newly launched app on his birthday on November 5th.

But then Virat Kohli had defended himself and added that he is all for freedom of choice.

Ending the statement on a cheery mode in an attempt to maintain the peace during Diwali season, Kohli stated: "Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season".

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. "Yes, I can like and endorse worldwide brands because I am getting money for it. He has publicly in the past admired sportsman from across the globe & his statement clearly was in a certain context.But mischievous targeting is a norm for a few".
