Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has been on the target of social media trolls every now and then. Recently, she was ridiculed for her presence with Team India on their visit to High Commission of India in London.
However, Anushka has now broken her silence on the hot topic, saying that her picture with husband Virat Kohli and rest of the India team members was well within the guidelines.
“Clarification has been made by whoever had to make it. This was a trolling activity. I don’t react to trolls, I don’t give attention to them. Whatever happened, has happened within the guidelines. Whatever will happen will always happen within the guidelines. This is a topic of absolutely no substance,” Anushka quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
On Wednesday (August 8), the official Twitter account of BCCI had posted a picture in which Twitterati were not pleased seeing Anushka along with the whole team.
As someone mentioned earlier the vice captain of the Indian cricket team is standing in last row, whereas the captain's wife is in front row. This just looks unprofessional by everyone.— Bharath Aiyanna (@bharathaiyanna) August 7, 2018

Is captain wife more important than vice captain? Where are other players wife's? Don't divide team for the sake of captain or Bollywood please— Sanjay Tank (@SanjaySTank) August 8, 2018
Anushka Sharma had travelled to England to accompany her hubby Virat Kohli. Given that the BCCI had strictly asked WAGs to leave before the third Test, Anushka returned to the homeland last week.
