NEW DELHI: After being trolled on social media for her boyfriend, Indian Cricketer and Vice-Captain Virat Kohli’s poor performance in the World Cup 2015 semi-final against Australia, the ‘NH10’ actress has found some support from her Bollywood colleagues including Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor, Sushmita Sen, Abhishek Bachchan and many others.
Anushka who was in Sydney on Thursday to see her beau performing in the field, was targeted immediately after Virat Kohlil left the crease scoring 1 run off 13 balls.
While people like Kamaal R Khan (KRK) left no chance to ridicule the actor-turned-producer on Twitter, many of Anushka’s colleagues came forward to extend their support for her.
KRK, famous for his ludicrous tweets continued his attack on Anushka on his wall and said that people should throw stones at Anushka Sharma’s house.
I request to all the people to go n throw stones at the house of Anushka Sharma who is the main reason for the defeat of India. #AUSvIND

However, Anushka has also reserved respect from her B-town friends as the constant attack on the young actress has not gone down well with them.
Calling the tweets against Anushka ‘disrespectful’, her Dil Dhadakne Do co-star Priyanka Chopra wrote on Twitter:
