People Call Virat Kohli A Hypocrite As Video Of Crackers Being Burst On His B’day Surfaces


Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli recently became fodder for memes after his teammate from the IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore, Shivam Dube, shared photos of himself bursting phooljadis and anars even after Virat urged everyone not to in a video.

Now, people online have been calling Virat a ‘hypocrite’ after a video of crackers being burst on his birthday surfaced on the internet.


It all happened when the official Instagram handle of the IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) shared a birthday video of Virat. In the clip, one can see crackers being burst somewhere in Dubai right before Kohli and wife Anushka Sharma are about to cut his birthday cake.

Twitterati didn’t take the video in good spirits and furiously schooled the captain for not practicing what he preached.



Some even highlighted how crackers have been an integral part of the celebrations during several cricketing tournaments.

Putting their side of the story on the stand, RCB clarified that the fireworks shown in the video was archival footage of UAE’s Flag Day celebrations.

Skipper Kohli will only play the first Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and will be absent from the rest three as he has been granted paternity leave to stay with Anushka to welcome their first child in January.
