A few days back renowned Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah verbally attacked Virat Kohli calling him “world’s worst behaved player” in a Facebook post, which has sparked a massive outrage on Social Media.
He then added by saying that Virat Kohli’s cricketing brilliance ‘pales’ in front of his ‘arrogance and bad manners.’ Shah concluded the post by saying that he doesn’t wish to leave the country.
It all started after Kohli and Paine got involved in a verbal spat during day 4 of the ongoing cricket series down under. Even the on-field umpire Chris Gaffaney had to interfere and gave a stern warning to both the players.
Virat Kohli fans were clearly unhappy with Shah and they came together to show their anger on Social Media.
I have personally been witness to a watchman getting publicly thrashed by #NaseeruddinShah outside a famous theatre because the watchman did not allow his car inside the premises as per their rules. Absolute ruffian, now playing victim & trying to create a narrative!! @imVkohli https://t.co/vOjfcion5M

According to Naseeruddin Shah Virat Kohli is a "bad boy" but Mumbai blast accused Yakub Memon is a "good boy" upon whose mercy petition Naseeruddin signed. Some people can't just rise beyond religion. #NaseeruddinShah #NaseeruddinvsVirat @imVkohli

Who's that #NaseeruddinShah to question @imVkohli . He is the captain of Indian Cricket team, Our national proud. This is the same Shah who three years back statemented that being a Muslim he is targeted, insulting his Hindu appriciater who made him to stand at this position!

Characterless Bollywoodiya who signed mercy petition of terrorist Yakub Memon involved in 1993 bomb blasts that killed hundres of innocent people is giving character certificate to India’s top cricketer

With all due respect Naseeruddin Sir, It takes a lifetime to build reputation, only a moment like this to ruin it altogether.

dear naseeruddin shah, I'm a huge fan of your acting but as far as cricket is concerned you don't have any knowledge about it and I request you to please stay out of it. #naseeruddinshah #viratkohli pic.twitter.com/deNbjkNibe

It is not bad behaviour on Virat Kohli's part, it is the assertiveness of modern sport. And it is still far better to watch a badly behaved cricket legend than to suffer an ugly actor well past his prime. And Kohli has much to be arrogant about, unlike N Shah. #naseeruddinshah

Let me assert that if a supersucceful world beater @imVkohli is worse behaved, we need more of young Virats to thumb their noses at white supremacist west. 👍✌️
BTW I respected #NaseeruddinShah bcos he was typical bad boy of Indian cinema slamming people 4overlooking his talent😄

And Mr. Naseeruddin Shah, I think you have not seen Australian cricket to make that remark. Jab Aussies sledge karte the, tab hum dubak ke rehte the. Ab woh zamaana chala gaya hai. Australia ke against toh Virat ki har aggression ko India ka support hai. Always with u @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/YxNHZIE4TJ

Naseeruddin Shah is jealous because what @imVkohli has achieved at this age, Shah has not achieved that during his whole acting career.
P.S: Naseer, this time you are not a voice of common men & this ones for you pic.twitter.com/1tfFEOTRTg

Actor Naseeruddin Shah attacks Virat Kohli by calling him World's worst behaved player
Look who is talking about behavior
3 years ago he had said he's being targeted for being Muslim
Then, he insulted Millions of Hindus who made him a star
Attacking Kohli is his new Project

The irrelevant #NaseeruddinShah tries to gain relevance by attacking India's greatest batsman @imVkohli #Shah shud stop preaching to cricketers & first ask molesters & rapist's from Bollywood to surrender. Wonder if he understands the meaning of aggression in true sporting spirit pic.twitter.com/zBsaRnWEVP
