New Delhi: India's star batsman Virat Kohli has slammed haters for trolling his former girlfriend Anuskha Sharma.
"Shame on people for trolling Anushka Sharma non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity," Kohli wrote on Twitter on Monday.
He wrote a longer message on Instagram to extend support to the Bollywood actress.
"Shame on those people who have been having a go at Anushka for the longest time and connecting every negative thing to her. Shame on those people calling themselves educated. Shame on blaming and making fun of her when she has no control over what I do with my sport," Kohli wrote in the post.
"If anything she has only motivated and given me more positivity. This was long time coming. Shame on these people that hide and take a dig," he said, while adding that he doesn't need any "respect for this post".
"Have some compassion and respect her. Think of how your sister or girlfriend or wife would feel if someone trolled them and very conveniently rubbished them in public," he wrote.
