Privacy Violated: Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma Furious Over Video Of Hotel Room
PERTH, (IANS) – A video of Virat Kohli’s hotel room has been filmed and leaked by a fan or probably a staff member of the hotel that he was staying in. The hotel, Crown Towers in Perth, has issued a statement saying all individuals involved in this incident have been ‘stood down’ and they are working with the Indian men’s cricket team and ICC.
An angry Kohli shared the video on October 31 and wrote, “I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favoritete players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. 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.” The cricketer’s accessories and luggage was put on display in the video.
His wife Anushka Sharma too took to the story section of her Instagram and shared the video. She wrote on the video: “Have experienced a few incidents where some fans have shown no compassion or grace in the past, but this really is the worst thing”.
Calling the video “an absolute disgrace and violation of a human being”, she further mentioned in her note: “Anyone who sees this and thinks celebrity ho toh deal karna padega (If you are a celebrity then you will have to deal with this) should know that you are also part of the problem. Exercising some self-control helps everyone. Also, if this is happening in your bedroom then where is the line?”
This is not the first time that Anushka has reacted strongly to the issue of breach of privacy. The actress had earlier come down heavily on paparazzo who clicked picture of the Sharma-Kohli couple, Vamika Kohli.
