On Saturday, Indian citizens were highly surprised to wake up to the hashtag #VirushkaDivorce that was trending on social media. However, no one knew why there were no reports of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma splitting up. True or not this surely gave rise to Virushka divorce meme collection.
It all started when Indian Twitter users started sharing an article by Times of India that had claimed that Virat and Anushka had split. However, those sharing the article had forgotten to check the actual date stamp. The article was initially published on February 9, 2016. This proves the fact that the article was published two years after Virat and Anushka, together known as Virushka had started dating. It is evident that things clearly have not went well between the two as they had tied the knot a year later on December 11.
This is certainly not the first time the private lives of Virat and Anushka’s have been dragged into public in recent times. Anushka Sharma was criticized by the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA, Nandkishor Gurjar for producing Amazon Prime TV series Paatal Lok. According to Gurjar, the show displays the negative image of the country and thus should be considered as an ‘anti-national’ show. Moreover, an FIR has also been filed by him that involves some serious charges against the producer.
In order to ensure that a strong message could be delivered to the audience, Gurjar has also asked Virat Kohli to divorce. In an interview to Newsroom Post, Gurjar said that being a patriotic citizen of the country, Kohli needs to take a firm stand against this issue so that the country’s positive image could be upheld
