Anushka Sharma's video in which she is seen schooling a man over littering has divided Twitter. While some are applauding the actress for teaching the man a good lesson, others called it a gimmick. Those against the act stated that the actress could have spoken politely instead of lambasting him.
Many social media users even tweeted questioning the motive behind the video. If you have been living under a rock, here's what happened. In a 17-second-long clip shared by cricketer Virat Kohli, Anushka was seen scolding a man in a dark sedan for littering the streets. The video, however, didn't show the man throwing garbage. The actress can be heard saying, ''Why are you throwing garbage on the road, you cannot just throw plastic on the streets just like that.'' She further asks him to use a dustbin.
Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness. @AnushkaSharma pic.twitter.com/p8flrmcnba— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) June 16, 2018
Sharing the clip, Kohli captioned it: ''Saw these people throwing garbage on the road & pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same & spread awareness. @AnushkaSharma''
In the second tweet, he also pulled up people and gave an earful to those making memes out of the video. Kohli wrote, ''Lot of people who don't have the courage to do something like this find it funny. Everything for people nowadays is meme content. Shame.''

On a related note, the person has been identified as Arhhan Singh and he took to Facebook to lash out at Anushka and Virat. He wrote, ''Horrible! So I happened to carelessly litter a square millimetre of plastic while driving! A car passing by rolls their window down and there we have our wonderful Anushka Sharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person!
''While I'm apologetic for my carelessness, Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli a little etiquette and politeness in your dialogue wouldn't have made you a lesser star! There are all kinds of manners and hygiene... verbal etiquette is one of them! (It) was way less then the garbage that came out from your mouth... From your luxury car's window... Or the trashy mind Virat Kohli to shoot and post this online... For whatever gains..." he added.
