While Rahul is recovering from the surgery, this video has become the talk of the town. A fan posted a video on Twitter claiming that KL had been spotted in a strip club in the UK.

KL Rahul already has been getting trolled for his lean patch with the bat. This video further emboldened the trolls to take a dig at the Lucknow Super Giants captain and opener.
Athiya was having none of it though. She wrote in a posted on her Instagram stories that while she often refrains from speaking about cricket and her husband’s professional career, this time she’s decided to take a stand against the faceless trolls on social media.
She said that she was with Rahul the whole time and they had some of their friends in company as well, and that things have been taken out of context.
“I usually choose to be silent and not react, but sometimes it’s important to stand up for yourself. Rahul, I and our friends went out to a regular place, as one does. Stop taking things out of context and check your facts before reporting. Peace and love,” Athiya Shetty wrote on her Instagram story.
