Last night during the match, commentator Sunil Gavaskar passed a double meaning and sexist comment on Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma which led to quite the debate on social media. Referring to a video of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli playing cricket during the lockdown, Sunil Gavaskar said, “Sirf Anushka ke bowling ki practice ki hai inhone”.
The comments did not sit well with a lot of people while the others made fun of Anushka. The actress took to her Instagram story to call out to veteran sportsman for his distasteful comments that were uncalled for. Demanding an explanation for the same, she said, “That, Mr. Gavaskar, your message is distasteful is a fact but I would love for you to explain why you thought of making such a sweeping comment on a wife accusing her of her husband’s game? I’m sure over the years you have respected the private lives of every cricketer while commentating on the game. Don’t you think you should have equal amount of respect for me and us?”
