New Delhi:

Anushka Sharma recently found herself at the epicentre of massive backlash directed
towards BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) after she accompanied her
husband Virat Kohli, along with Team India, to a gathering hosted by the High
Commission of India in London. Anushka was mercilessly trolled on Twitter for being the

"odd one out" in a photo tweeted by BCCI last week, which was responded with silence
on Anushka's part until recently, when the 30-year-old actress told news agency ANI:
"Whoever had to make a justification on the activity has made it. I feel this was just a
trolling activity and I don't react to trolls."

After BCCI tweeted the photo featuring Anushka along with Team India, many on Twitter
enquired how the star wife continues to accompany Virat for the Test series as BCCI
had barred girlfriends and wives of the Indian players from joining their partners till the
Test against England is over. Anushka told ANI that her accompanying Virat and the
team to the gathering was well within boundaries of the BCCI directives: "Whatever
happened has happened within the guidelines and will always happen in the guidelines
and I won't say anything more on this." She also made a plea to not let the issue
snowball into an unprecedented controversy: "Let's not make a huge hue and cry of a
topic with such little substance."

This is what BCCI had tweeted last week:

Earlier this year, Anushka was trolled for a viral video tweeted by Virat Kohli, in which
she can be seen asking a fellow commuter to not litter on the streets. However, the
actress was quickly defended by Virat in another social media post, which slammed the
trolls saying: "Lot of people who don't have the courage to do something like this find it
funny. Everything for people nowadays is meme content. Shame."

Virat Kohli @imVkohli · Jun 16, 2018


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. @AnushkaSharma pic.twitter.com/p8flrmcnba

Virat Kohli
@imVkohli

Lot of people who don't have the courage to do something like


this find it funny. Everything for people nowadays is meme
content. Shame.

Anushka, who dated Virat on and off since 2013 before finally getting married in
December last year, was repeatedly blamed and trolled each time Virat underperformed
on the pitch in 2015. In March the following year, Anushka was trolled again about
Virat's pitch result after India reached the semi-finals of the World T20 championship,
when Virat jumped publicly to her defence and posted this tweet, which recorded the
highest number of re-tweets in 2016.
