Bengaluru: Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are one of the famous celebrity couples in India. So when social media trends like #VirushkaDivorce pops up, it's bound to leave many wondering what's going on. This new trend has confused the internet as to why there is even a need for it.
Yes, through the years, we have seen India cricket team captain Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka becoming strong.
In such a case, if you find a social media trend like #VirushkaDivorce, it is common that one gets shocked. After the television series Paatal Lok landed in legal trouble with a politician, he demanded that Kohli should divorce the Bollywood actress.
This was when the debate began, and fans began wondering about the matter, even as there was no comment from Anushka as a response to the politician.
Now #VirushkaDivorce is trending on Twitter. Observing the trend, we chose to see if the direction makes any sense.
After a little digging around, we found that the trend begins with BJP MLA Nand Kishore Gurjar, who claimed his photo was used without his permission in the show. In a video, he demanded that a national cricketer like Virat Kohli shouldn't be with Anushka Sharma.
Also, a 2016 article by a media house, with the headline 'Confirmed: Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli split', has been making the rounds. Unexpectedly, this article was never taken down. So it added fuel to the fire.
As a result, this Twitter trend has picked up a lot of traction, and fans are confused. Netizens, however, are alerting fake news on the trend and have turned it into a meme fest. The truth is neither the cricketer nor the actress have commented or invited such news about their divorce.
Both Kohli and Anushka are enjoying their time together as India remains under a lockdown due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
