Finally, the main character in the red-hot story makes his voice out. The last few hours is all about Virat Kohli’s reply to the fan, where he asked fan to leave India. However, various people took the other side of his intentions and started debates across the media platforms.
Virat in an interaction video read out a comment where one of the fans quoted that he doesn’t like the Indian batsmen style of play. Instead, he likes to watch Australia and England batsmen, who look a bit more stylish. Further, he also added that Kohli is an over-rated cricketer.
In reply, Virat Kohli said ”“I don’t think you should live in India, go and live somewhere else. Why are you living in our country and loving other countries? I don’t mind you not liking me, but I don’t think you should live in our country and like other things. Get your priorities right.”
Social media users had been quick to call out Kohli over his remarks – and many referred to past instances in which he had praised sportspeople of other nationalities.

But earlier, Virat Kohli clarified that he was furious because the person who texted the comment used ”These Indians”, which didn’t sit well with him. Further, he asked the people to see the things in a lighter way.
During the course, he also asked his fans to enjoy the festive season with love and peace rather than pushing the negative things harder. Meanwhile, fans also joined Virat Kohli to keep the things simple.
Virat Kohli tweeted that, ”I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how “these Indians” was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all.”
I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! 😁
I spoke about how “these Indians” was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. 🙏 Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all. ✌😊

Now, hopefully after the clarification from Virat Kohli things will get better. As Virat Kohli said, one should see the lighter side of it rather than spending time over it.
