Virat Kohli launched 'Virat Kohli Official App' on the eve of his 30th birthday on Monday. A Cricket Fan commented, 'Kohli is an overrated batsman. Nothing seems special in his batting. I enjoy watching English and Australian batsmen more than these Indians'.
The Skipper reacted, 'I don't think you should live in India. Go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don't mind you not liking me. I don't think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right'.
There is severe backlash on the way Virat Kohli responded on the comment by a fan. Hero Siddharth came down heavily on the Run Machine, 'If you want to remain #KingKohli it may be time to teach yourself to think 'What would Dravid say?' before speaking in future. What an idiotic set of words to come from an India captain!'.
The Actor had even explained how Film Celebs respond when they were troll about their movies: 'I don't watch these Indian Movies. They're so lame. I like watching Hollywood films. I only watch Bollywood. These SouthFilms are so funny. I don't watch films. Such a waste of time'. We here these words a lot. We listen and we move along. BeLikeDravid.
Finally, The Indian Captain tried to downplay his controversial comments: 'I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all. I'm all for freedom of choice. Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all'.
Commentator Harsha Bhogle felt Virat Kohli should have avoided such a controversy from happening. 'Virat Kohli's statement is a reflection of the bubble that most famous people either slip into or are forced into. It is a comfortable bubble and that is why famous people must try hard to prevent it from forming,' he wrote.
