While Anushka Sharma is unfortunately at the receiving end of many insulting and accusatory statements, purely for her attendance at the India-Australia match earlier this week, friends close to Sharma claim that the actress attended the match on boyfriend Virat Kohli’s insistence.
���We heard it was Virat who insisted she be there. ��She had told her close friends she wasn�۪t going to go. ��She doesn�۪t like being judged as a source of distraction at the matches…��She never wanted all this attention. ��It sickens her to be constantly under scrutiny for her relationship. ��If this ceaseless interest in their relationship and the tendency to judge her constantly through his performances on field continues, we are afraid this may take its toll on their relationship,� a source allegedly close to the actress told��Deccan Chronicle.
It can be noted that the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) have considered a ban on cricketer’s wives or girlfriends accompanying the cricketers on overseas tours. ��Apparently the board is now looking into this issue more seriously post the incident this week, with Sharma being blamed by some critics for Kohli’s��under-performance in the match against Australia.
Sharma and Kohli have chosen to stay as quiet about their relationship as possible, though not hiding it. ��They were seen holding hands at the airport on their return to India from Australia post the controversy.
