Anushka Sharma, the lady who made the headlines ever since she has announced her pregnancy, was seen trending on micro-blogging site Twitter lately after legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar made a controversial remark involving her. This happened during IPL match between Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kings XI Punjab. While the ace cricketer failed to meet the expectations during the game, Gavaskar, who was from the commentary panel made an unsavoury remark involving Virat and Anushka and stated that the RCB skipper had only practiced against the Zero actress’ balling during the lockdown.

This has certainly not gone down well with Anushka who decided to give a befitting reply to Gavaskar for his remarks. In a long post on Instagram, the actress questioned the legendary cricketer about dragging her into cricket and not giving her the due respect. Anushka wrote, “That, Mr Gavaskar, your message is distasteful is a fact, but I would love for you to explain why you thought of making such a sweeping statement on a wife accusing her for her husband’s game? I’m sure over the years you have respected the private lives of every cricketer while commenting on the game. Don’t you think you should have an equal amount of respect for me and us?”

“I’m sure you can have many other words and sentences in your mind to use to comment on my husband’s performance from last night or are your words only relevant if you use my name in the process? It’s 2020 and things still don’t change for me. When will I stop getting dragged into cricket and stop being used to pass sweeping statements? Respected Mr Gavaskar, you are a legend whose name stands tall in this gentleman’s game. Just wanted to tell you what I felt when I heard you say this.”

Meanwhile, as many people were trolling Anushka on social media, a section of netizens came out in her support. A Twitter user wrote, “People are literally dragging a pregnant woman just because her husband didn’t perform well in a match. DISGUSTING AND MISOGYNIST BEHAVIOUR #SochBadlo #AnushkaSharma #IstandwithAnushka.” Another user tweeted, “#SunilGavaskar is a legend in the game. And is respected by all generations. Wasn’t expected from him. There are a lot of old and good players not doing well. U don’t question them. Then why #ViratKohli and that too dragging his wife #AnushkaSharma. A cheap stunt. #IPL2020”.

When you can't differentiate between a cricket commentary and a political one, that's when you know feminism has gone too far, and the entire Indian feminist movement has proved itself utterly stupid and brainless blonde joke by this one. Go learn cricket first, then pour fake, useless outrage all over the internet. We don't need it. I also can't help but wonder whether they're jealous that women are not making as much money through cricket, it's a conspiracy by these frustrated ones to bring down IPL.

She is the partner of ma-bhen Kohli who abuses women all the time and now she wants to make big speeches on respect for women. No other wag behaves like she does, they respect the boundaries of the professional spaces of the team. How many players do you see doing publicity like blowing kisses to the wag in the stands, for all that she has no problem taking the attention away off the field. Also she makes it seem that just because she got invited to that event that they forced her at gunpoint to pose in the team photo. She could have had the decency to politely decline but she went and stood front and center like a big deal when she shouldn’t have been there at all

People in Indian cricket just don't like her, she goes everywhere which no cricketer's wife has ever done, she is in all team meetings and events where wives aren't invited. She thinks she is first lady of Indian cricket and it's her husband's personal business so she bosses everyone around. PV doesn't want to post this but it's true.

Anushka is a hypocrite. She never speaks for women's respect when her husband abuses every mother and sister of opposition players, she never said a word when her husband insulted Sri Lanka with off season comments, she never speaks about Bollywood drug addicts. Not only Bollywood Diva's have feeling. I am from Sri Lanka & people here love & adore Rohit Sharma and many cricketers from past but when Kohli abuses we too get hurt Mrs. Anushka. Tell your husband to stop dragging mothers & sisters while playing so called gentlemen's game. BTW if she is not related to cricket why did she stood in BCCI group pics front row putting vice captain behind? We only saw her with Indian team (on feield) in 2019 Australia after test series win, so that time why didn't she refuse these favors saying dont drag me into cricket

What's so wrong in what he said? Isn't she Zero actress? Why does she ride on high horses? Or taking page out of Kangna's playbook? Create controversy and everyone forget the real issues.

Anushka conveniently uses the the fact that he is the cricketing captain where required and doesn’t like it if her name is mentioned in a comment . She though she could pose for the Indian cricket team photos , she also went and invited PM modi because Virat was the Indian cricket captain - no other actress could go n invite Modi so where convenient she uses that stage but isn’t able to take when her name is brought up ... hypocrite

According to some sources,Virat Kohli and Anushka wedding expense was sponsored by Aneel mussarat a Pakistani ISI agent , Virat Kohli lose champion trophy for Aneel mussarat. Boycott IPL matches,all money collected from IPL matches goes for anti national activity! These celebrities deserve only our hate!

How did she get so famous? Does anyone remember her for any performance? She stuck to big production in movies where no one cared if there was an actress and made money and Virat.

He didn’t make fun of you Anushka. This is called making a mountain of a molehill. Or Virat is using Anushka to fight against Sunil Gavaskar! Ridiculous! His comment would hold true irrespective of who Virat kohlis wife or any cricketers wife was unless the wife was a cricketer herself. Gosh so painful trying to explain a joke!

This woman gets so defensive when it comes to issues like cricket. I understand if the comment was a dig but it wasn't it was just a joke! Let's be real she is involved in cricket. look at how she and virat hogged the limelight at indian sports honours and she's always with the team! this woman is so annoying

Not really, you may draw your own judgements out of someone's comments(which may not always be true) but incase it is there are many examples when people come off as defensive when they are blamed even if they aren't at fault at all. You or I or just anyone doesn't get to decide everyone's emotions/reactions . You can react differently to the same thing and she can be defensive even if she is not at all at fault.
