After Arhhan Singh, the guy who threw garbage on the road in Virat Kohli's video, his mother has too responded to the incident. On Saturday, Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli had shared a video of his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in which she scolded Arhhan for littering on a road.
Gittanjali, Arhhan's mother put up a screenshot from the video and went on a rant against the celeb couple.
In his post, she wrote, "The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS!
You both posted a video for your fans n followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy &you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content
you both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers & all the PR backing you... you may be payed for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity. (sic)"
She came in support of his son and lashed out at the couple for not blurring the face. "As a mother,I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but youve also exposed him to unwanted hostility.... and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways ? I am concerned about my sons SAFTEY !!!
how dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following ?How dare you?? (sic)"
Unhappy with the action, she advised them to spread the awarness in a better way. "If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness , then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane.. you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take action atleast in the lane where you live,to start with, which you haven’t . Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers.
If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner... and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see!
You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally and humanitarianly very wrong.
You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field...but on the streets you are just a citizen trying to correct another... DO IT WITH KINDNESS ....fear karma .
And just FYI , he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldnt care less,but only because he has a decent upbringing ! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish !, (sic)" Gittanjali added.
In the video, Anushka can be heard asking the men in the car, “Why are you throwing garbage on the road?” When the men reply with silence, she continues, “Don’t throw garbage on the road. Please be careful.”
