On Sunday evening, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s daughter Vamika’s pictures broke the internet. Anushka and Vamika were seen celebrating Virat’s on-field performance in Cape Town. As the pictures went viral, the couple took to social media and wrote, “Hi guys! We realise that our daughter’s image were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter. We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn’t know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. we would really appreciate if Vamika’s images are not clicked/published for reasons we have explained earlier!”
While many media houses took down the photograph and the fans of the couple also came out in their support, a bunch of people trolled them.
An internet user suggested that India’s live matches should not be telecasted as there will always be a fear of Vamika’s pictures getting leaked. He wrote, “I request BCCI, Sony Sports Network and Star Sports India to not telecast India’s live matches when Anushka Sharma brings her daughter in the stadium. It’s her privacy, 138 cr people can wait and read score on cricbuzz.”
Another person tweeted, “Cricket hi band kardo jab take Kohli-Anushka comfortable nhi ho jaate.”
Anushka and Virat welcomed their daughter Vamika on January 11, 2021. Since then, they have been communicating to the world that they don’t wish to expose her to the limelight. They earlier made a statement, “We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older, we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice restraint in the matter.”
