Mumbai: Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Saturday shared a video of his wife, actor Anushka Sharma, scolding a man for littering on a road.
In the video, Anushka can be seen pulling over the car next to hers and asking the man inside not to throw garbage on the streets.
"Why are you throwing garbage on the road? Don't throw garbage on the road. Please be careful," she said.
Virat captured the incident on his phone and shared it on Twitter, saying, "Saw these people throwing garbage on the road and pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right!!! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same and spread awareness."

"Lot of people who don't have the courage to do something like this find it funny. Everything for people nowadays is meme content. Shame," he added.

Twitter is divided over Kohli's recent viral video in which wife Anushka Sharma can be seen schooling a man for throwing garbage on the road.
While some people applauded the actress for giving a 'piece of mind to these idiots', many, however, stated the couple's main motive was to just put the video out on social media.
Anushka Sharma's video is pointless. You can't enforce positive behavior in someone by screaming at them.— Pankaj Sachdeva (@sachdeva_pankaj) June 17, 2018
But seriously though, more than Anushka Sharma's concern for throwing plastics, shooting a video and posting on SM seemed like the main purpose 😑
aise samay mein video shoot karna kisko yaad ata hai bhai? Same like sachin tendulkar - helmet pehenlo 🤦♂️— CrAy (@laughsfliesaway) June 16, 2018

Anushka Sharma scolded someone for throwing garbage and the recording is doing the rounds.— Koi naa (@ashnaka13) June 16, 2018
I wish the face of the person would not have been shared as even though he made a mistake, he need not be made infamous through the clip.
Why are you recording your wife’s heroics and publishing it in social media??.. is this the first time you saw someone threw a plastic cover from a car?? If your intention was to advice him, first be friendly instead of being bossy.. this kinda attention seeking is so cheap😬— Achilles (@D_Conjurer) June 16, 2018
Cheap and crass level language by Anushka Sharma. And who recorded this video? Cheap publicity stunt.— Akshat Mathur (@MathurSpeaks) June 17, 2018
The 'Pari' actress was previously associated with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. In 2017, she was named as the face of a countrywide campaign to clean the streets, roads and for the infrastructural development of the country.
For those unversed, 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' was launched in October 2014 by the Narendra Modi-led government to make people aware about the advantages of cleanliness.
