Bizarre: Virat Kohli asks fan to leave India over minor reason

Bizarre: Virat Kohli asks fan to leave India over minor reason

Kohli, who launched the "Virat Kohli Official App" on his 30th birthday on Monday, faced the backlash after his reaction to a fan, who confessed his preference for English and Australian cricketers over Kohli's blue brigade.

In an unusual off-field action, Virat Kohli was unstoppable yet again in the video available on his newly released app.

The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) said on Thursday that they would look into the controversial video in which Indian skipper Virat Kohli can be seen lambasting a fan to go overseas for not supporting the Indian team.

"I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all".

Actor Siddharth came down heavily on Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli for his "leave India" comments on a fan.

"Virat needs to understand that if the fans go away to other countries, then no Puma etc. will want to sign him for ₹100 crores".

"Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season". The controversial comments from the Indian cricket captain came while he was reading tweets and Instagram messages, and simultaneously responding to them in a video.

Indian cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle was also disappointed with Kohli's poor attempt at humour.

Irked with these comments, Kohli replied "Okay, I don't think you should live in India then...you should go and live somewhere else, no?"

The Indian cricketer said that he didn't mind the fan not liking him but he didn't like it when people live in one country and like things from other countries.

Some others mocked Kohli's response.

"That is also why contrary opinions are frowned upon. Love and peace to all". "Power and fame tend to attract those people who agree with you and reinforce your opinion because they benefit from proximity to fame and power", Bhogle added.
