Actress Anushka Sharma and her cricketer husband Virat Kohli got legal notice by the man whom the actor advised for littering on a road. It was happened in Mumbai. The case was against shaming him. The man, Arhan Singh, sent a legal notice on Saturday for shaming him on social media last week.
Arhan tossed a plastic wrapper out on the road from his car’s window in Mumbai. In an SUV next to him, Anushka Sharma rolled down her window, and then gave him advice. A video of the incident was uploaded on social media by Virat Kohli, which went viral.
“Hi. My legal advisors have sent a notice to Mr Virat Kohli and Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli. As the ball is in their court, no comments now. As in all fairness I should await their response,” Arhan said Arhan.
The video, which had millions of views, received mixed reactions on the internet with many accusing the Anushka Sharma of being “rude”, “impolite” and “arrogant” in her tone. Many people also came in support of them, with union minister Kiren Rijiju saying civic sense is social ethics.
Later, Arhan in a Facebook post hit back at the celebrity couple and said, “The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my ‘luxury car’ was way less than the garbage that came out from your mouth, from your ‘luxury car’s window, or the trashy mind of Virat Kohli to shoot and post this online… for whatever gains. Now that’s some serious trash.”
Last night, Congress leader Sanjay Jha also jumped into controversy saying, “Celebrities don’t need to promote themselves when supposedly attempting a good thing. How much publicity do you want, guys?”
The NH-10 actor became the face of a campaign to clean the country as part of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious Clean India Mission, which kickstarted in 2014.
