Twitter users slam DNA for provocative clickbait story on Virat and Anushka

Cricket and Bollywood are two spheres in India which have the biggest following. Naturally, when two stars from these two universes unite, it makes for very good news-bytes. Cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Anushka Sharma who are rumoured to be a couple, thus make for a very exciting topic for media.

Thanks to media’s constant intrusive coverage of their relationship, Kohli and Sharma have often found themselves fighting the media. Kohli had last year slammed a media outfit for getting too personal with their questions. Earlier this year Anushka trashed media reports of Kohli producing her movie Phillauri.

Today, another media outlet seemingly crossed the line. DNA, had this tweet and story:

The story said:

Virat Kohli’s Instagram profile picture is one with his lady love Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma. But this time a photo has surfaced in social media which will not please Anushka for sure. Virat known for his timing of shots on the field, has now become victim of a badly-timed photo. In this photo he is seen gazing at IPL anchor Archana Vijaya’s ripped jeans. We wouldn’t want to be in Virat Kohi’s shoes when he explains this one to Anushka.

This time neither Kohli nor Sharma were needed as Twitter users came out to bat for the couple and hit DNA for a six. Many users called out this style of journalism by calling it “cheap” and they also pointed out that Virat Kohli was not “gazing at the anchor’s ripped jeans” but was reading the content off a card held by the anchor over her legs:

Some even asked Virat Kohli to take action and “screw DNA” using legal means:

Even former India captain, “Mr Cool” MS Dhoni has often rebuked media for their sensationalism. And the current Indian captain Kohli by no means can be called “Mr Cool”, so can we expect some fireworks soon? If yes, he may want to learn from his senior Virendra Sehwag.
