Legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has backed Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who was recently compared by the Australian daily with US President Donald Trump.
In an article, the daily compared Virat to Trump, saying that “Kohli has become the Donald Trump of World Sport.”
Mr. Bachchan, however, took a dig at the Australian media in his own style. He thanked them for ‘accepting the fact that Kohli is a winner and the president’.
In his Tweet the superstar of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan, wrote: “T 2471 – Aussi media calls Virat, Donald Trump of sports !! … thank you Aussi media for accepting that he is a winner and the PRESIDENT !!”
Earlier, in their article, the daily further stated that Kohli has become a law unto himself and accused him of spreading ‘FAKE News’. They were talking about Kohli’s allegation that some members of the Australian team had disrespected Indian team physio Patrick Farhart during the Ranchi Test.
“It’s funny all our guys ask about cricket as the first thing and you (Australian journalist) ask about something controversial,” said Kohli during the Ranchi Test.
“They (four-five of them) started taking Patrick’s name. I don’t know why. He’s our physio. His job is to treat me. I don’t find the reason behind it. I could not understand. You must ask why they have started taking his name,” he added.
