Virat Kohli breaks silence on her daughter’s picture surfacing on social media

The former Indian skipper Virat Kohli recently issued a statement on Monday, which is a day after photos and videos of daughter Vamika started circulating on social media during the India vs South Africa third and final ODI at Newlands in Cape Town on Sunday. In fact the picture went viral and Kohli is seemingly unhappy with it. He and his wife Anushka Sharma posted Instagram stories on their respective official handles to request not to click photos of their daughter. 

Virat Kohli has a request for the fans

India were clean swept in the 3-match ODI series against South Africa following the disappointing Test series loss against The Proteas. It was during the match that photos of Anushka holding Vamika, who turned 1 this month, in the stands at Newlands went viral on Sunday. Anushka was seen clapping and cheering as Virat Kohli reached his fifty in the third ODI against South Africa.

Virat and Anushka said they were “caught off guard” but their stance regarding privacy of their daughter remained the same. “Hi guys! We realise that our daughter’s images were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter,” Kohli and Anushka wrote in their Instagram stories.

“We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn’t know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same.”

“We would really appreciate if Vamika’s images are not clicked/ published for reasons we have explained earlier. Thank you!” the couple added.


Virat and Anushka have notably tried to keep their daughter away from the limelight. It was also noted last month, before heading to South Africa, while getting off the team bus Kohli had requested the media outside the airport gates not to click pictures of his daughter.
