We often see celebrities with starry-eyed envy. Most of the general public wants to live the life of a star and often dreams of achieving similar popularity feats. Something however that we don’t consider is the scrutiny that comes with being a star.
In India, for example, the cricketers and their families are always under the scanner of the media. Their every movement and life event is captured by the camera and spread out for everyone to see. Sometimes this must be very taxing on these stars. This is probably why Anushka Sharma, the Bollywood actress and the wife of Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli wants to keep their child away from media for as long as they can.
The celebrity duo has on many occasions come out and asked for privacy regarding their daughter. The star parent has urged media houses to not click any pictures of their daughter but not everyone listens.
In a similar instance of defiance, some journalists were able to take pictures of Vamika Kohli, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s daughter, while coming from vacation, and shared them on social media. The ‘Sultan’ actress wasn’t very amused at this and soon took to Instagram to share her anger in the comment section of one such media house.
Berating the media house, Anushka Sharma said, “Seems like the group knows what’s better for kids than their parents themselves as they can’t stop clicking pictures and posting photos despite requests repeatedly. The actress even asked the media house to “Learn something from other media houses and paparazzi.”
Virat Kohli is currently given rest following a subpar Indian T20 League performance that saw him make just 341 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 115. The star India batter is expected to join the Indian team for the upcoming Test match against England starting on July 1. The Indian team is currently hosting South Africa in a five-match T20I series and has lost the first two. The Men in Blue are looking to get back into the series with a win in the third T20I on June 14th.
