Virat Kohli leaves Team India stumped with stunning answer
Virat Kohli, India’s talisman, is perhaps the most popular cricketer on the planet, which keeps him in the spotlight everywhere the team goes. Virat Kohli’s massive fan base has occasionally caused him problems, and something similar happened on Monday when someone entered his hotel room in Perth without his consent. Even his personal items were videotaped by the intruder.
Virat Kohli was enraged by the incident and chastised such fandom.
But Virat Kohli refuses to submit a formal complaint with the police about the incident, and his choice has stunned the Indian cricket squad.
“Kohli was asked by team management if he wanted to submit an official complaint with the hotel. He, on the other hand, refused. So, in his opinion, the subject would not be pursued further,” a Team India official stated.
Kohli’s reactions to the incident
The former India captain had previously called the act “appalling,” adding that it had left him “paranoid” about his privacy.
Virat Kohli then implored his millions of fans to respect his privacy and not treat him as a commodity for entertainment.
“I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favorite players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy,” Virat Kohli’s note on social media read.
“If I cannot have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and not treat them as a commodity for entertainment,” he added.

Crown Towers’ Apology
Meanwhile, the Crown Towers in Perth apologised for the incident to Virat Kohli, “We unreservedly apologise to the guest involved and will continue to take the necessary steps to ensure this remains an isolated incident. Crown has taken immediate steps to rectify the issue. The individuals involved have been stood down and removed from the Crown account, and the original video was swiftly removed from the social media platform.”
“Crown is conducting an investigation with the third-party contractor and will take any further steps necessary to ensure an incident of this nature does not happen again. We are also cooperating with the Indian Cricket team and the International Cricket Council to convey our apologies and will continue to work with them as we progress the investigation,” the hotel added in its statement.
Anushka Sharma was outraged
Anushka Sharma was outraged after her husband stated that an intruder broke into his hotel room in Perth and videotaped his personal stuff before posting the film on social media.
Anushka Sharma’s reaction came after Virat Kohli lambasted the person who trespassed into his hotel at Perth’s Crown Towers. The great cricketer and his Indian teammates have been sleeping there since the Men in Blue arrived for their match against South Africa in the present T20 World Cup.
“Have experienced a few incidents where some fans have shown no compassion or grace in the past but this really is the worst thing. An absolute disgrace and violation of a human being and anyone who sees this and thinks celebrity ho toh deal Karna padega should know that you are also part of the problem. Exercising some self control helps everyone. Also, if this is happening in your bedroom then where is the line?” Anushka Sharma wrote, while sharing the video.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have always been quite protective of their privacy since they began dating. They asked the media not to post their daughter Vamika’s images after her birth in 2020 because they don’t want their child to be subjected to public scrutiny at such a young age.
In a joint statement after the birth of their daughter, they both said, “We’ve thought about it a lot. We definitely do not want to raise a child in the public eye—we don’t plan on engaging our child in social media. I think it’s a decision your child should be able to take. No kid should be made to be more special than the other. It’s hard enough for adults to deal with it. It’s going to be difficult, but we intend to follow through,”
