BCCI Asked Virat Kohli To Lodge Complaint For Hotel Room Incident But Former Captain Gave A Brilliant Reply


Indian batting superstar Virat Kohli left everyone stunned after he dropped an explosive post over a leaked video of his hotel room, hours after India's defeat at the hands of South Africa in the Super 12 stage of the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022. In the leaked video, titled 'King Kohli's Hotel Room', a man is seen walking around Kohli's hotel room, showing his personal belongings such as health supplements, a collection of shoes, his opened suitcase that contained India jerseys, caps and a pair of glasses on his table.

On Monday, Virat Kohli reshared the video on his official Instagram account along with a message saying he is not okay with such  kind of 'fanaticism'. Virat, who is currently in Adelaide with the rest of the Indian side, wrote: 

"I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favourite players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I cannot have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and not treat them as a commodity for entertainment."

Check out the Instagram video:

After Virat called out the fan on social media, the hotel issued an apology saying, "...we are incredibly disappointed this incident has occurred. We unreservedly apologise to the guest involved and will continue to take the necessary steps to ensure this remains an isolated incident... The Crown took immediate steps to rectify the issue, including launching an investigation, standing down the individuals involved and removing them from the Crown account."
Amidst all this, the Indian team management asked if Kohli wanted to lodge an official complaint but the former Indian captain chose not to stretch the matter further. “The team management asked Kohli if he wanted to file an official complaint with the hotel. However, he didn’t want to. So from his point of view, the issue won’t be pursued further,”
