The web-series ‘Paatal Lok’, produced by Anushka Sharma, has had the fans gripped in front of their screens ever since it started streaming on OTT platform Amazon Prime. While it has mostly received praises from all quarters, the series has also sparked a few controversies. The Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) MLA Nandkishor Gurjar has filed an FIR against Anushka for using his picture without consent.
Moreover, the right-wing MLA has also filed a police case against the Bollywood actress under the National Security Act for creating a communal stir in the society. And now, Nandkishor has gone one step ahead urging Team India skipper Virat Kohli to give divorce to his wife.
BJP MLA wants Virat Kohli to divorce Anushka Sharma
In a conversation with Newsroom Post, Nandkishor stated that no one is bigger than the country. Thus, Virat shouldn’t tolerate it and must divorce Anushka as soon as possible, added the BJP MLA. He also said that this step from the Indian captain will send a strong message to everyone.
“Desh se koi bada nahi hai. Virat Kohli desh ke liye khelte hai aur desh bhakt hai. Unhone Anushka ko turant talak dena chahiye,” he said.
(The quotes as mentioned above roughly translates to – No one is bigger than the country. Virat Kohli is a patriotic person and plays for India. He should divorce Anushka soon. This will send a strong message).
