Anushka Sharma BLAMED For Virat Kohli's Failure; SEXISM AT ITS WORST

Hats off to Virat Kohli who has consistently acknowledged, defended and praised his love Anushka Sharma. The images of him and Anushka landing together from Sydney--- after India couldn't make it to the top in World Cup 2015--- hand-in-hand are still stark in mind.  I wish that every current Bollywood heroine's lover was like him- but alas! Anyway, that's not the story.

The story is, we are people of double standards. Else wouldn't some morons have blamed Virat for Anushka's film Jab Harry Met Sejal turning out to be a cropper?

The question we need to ask here is: If Anushka is castigated for Virat's failures on the field, why is she not lauded when her husband says that she kept him going in the on-going series against SA? That's the million-dollar question. That's the ACTUAL story.

Did Anushka tell Virat to drop Bhuvneshwar Kumar from the 2nd Test in SA? Horrendous decision alright, but did the lady in question even trigger it off? No, she did not.

Did Anushka tell Virat to not include Ajinkya Rahane in the first 2 Tests? Atrocious decision alright, but did the lady in question want that? Certainly not. Think of it, Virat had a justifiable counter that he had gone in for the in-form Rohit Sharma instead.

And if and when it happens, does Anushka tell Virat to flirt outside the off-stump and edge the ball behind the wickets? But the morons among us- and mind you, there are many--- think that.

Pray, who gives us the fuc***g right to blame her? Why the f**k are we blaming a lady who had told me three years back that she is just beginning to know (yeah, she had just started dating Virat then) what cricket is all about? And today even if she has become a Preity Zinta who manages a team, should we hold her responsible if and when her husband fails with the bat or Team India loses a match. God damnit, it's only a game!

If and when Tiger Pataudi was dismissed early, was Sharmila Tagore pushed against the wall?

If and when Ravi Shastri failed, was his girlfriend Amrita Singh blamed?

If and when Saurav Ganguly got out cheaply, was his girlfriend Nagma collared?

The answer to the above three questions is: There was no social media then. Social media has brought out the real wild, non-regretful personality of us out in the open. Social media has brought out how messed up we are in our heads, today.

If and when Rohit Sharma fails- and he fails quite often- is his wife Ritika Sajdeh blamed?

No, Ritika is not blamed. Simply because she is not a heroine. We think we own the Bollywood heroines--- we can stalk them on their social media pages, we can abuse them...

Let's admit: We are a bunch of sexists.

Let me conclude: I need to hide my face in shame.
