Mumbai: Last few months, there have been reports making the rounds that there is a rift erupted between Indian skipper Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma. The latter had unfollowed Kohli from his Instagram page and the cold vibes between them have been visible from quite some time. Talking about it, a source had said to Deccan Chronicle, “There were reports which came out following the World cup about a rift between two senior players in the dressing room, though no names were mentioned.”
Now, after unfollowing Virat on Instagram, Rohit also unfollowed the captain’s wife and actor Anushka Sharma from the photo-sharing app. Soon after that, Anushka took to her Instagram story and posted a cryptic note which read as, “A wise man once said nothing. Only truth can shake hands with silence in a mess of false appearances.” Well, this seems to be a serious issue, indeed!
Anushka’s post came after the action by Team India’s player, Rohit unfollowed her hubby Virat and her on social media. Amidst this, Anushka and Virat are still following Rohit Sharma. Certain reports coming also stated that since the ICC World Cup 2019 defeat of team India, Rohit and Virat haven’t spoken to each other. While fans are hoping and praying that this should not cause any trouble in the team and that all ends well between two world class players.
