Indian run machine and batting sensation Virat Kohli has found immense backing in former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharrudin. Azhar, in his recent interaction with the media at an event clearly stated that it wasn’t fair for the media to openly discuss Kohli’s personal life. The former Indian skipper said that rather than his personal life, people should pay more heed to his on-field performances.
Kohli’s relationship with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was the centre of attraction for quite some time. The social media was simply flooded with gossips surrounding Kohli’s relationship with the Bollywood actress. “I think the press should tackle it first properly (About Kohli’s personal life). It is someone’s personal life, you cannot talk about it. Virat is a cricketer and one should look at what he is doing. Presently, he is performing really well,” said Azharrudin. “I think one should leave the things happening in someone’s private life. I think one shouldn’t be too judgemental,” he said.
Kohli had recently slammed people for mocking and trolling the actress on social media through his Twitter and Instagram accounts. In the past, the actress was often held as the culprit when Kohli failed to score and most notably, after the semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2015, where Kohli could not set the stage on fire.
