Virat Kohli, with his brilliance in cricket, has become a global figure. He has become a household name and has a massive fan following. The 33-year-old is arguably the most popular cricketer of this era. More recently, he became the first Asian to reach 200 million followers on Instagram. Besides, he became the third-most followed sports personality in the world. Only Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are ahead of him.
With such a large fan base, the seasoned cricketer draws a lot of brands as well. He serves as a social media brand ambassador for a variety of brands, including Puma and Wrogn. While he represents various products, he is also quite active on social media. He frequently publishes videos or images of his fitness regimens or matches.
However, some fans have taken his achievements and have attempted to troll others. The latest target was Virat Kohli’s brother Vikas Kohli. Vikas put up a post of his workout session with the caption, “Pre-holiday workout”. The troll commented on this post saying, “The Instagram user wrote on Vikas’ post, “Bhai ka 200 million subscribers hogaya sale ka I million v nahi hua (Brother’s subscribers have reached 200 million and you haven’t reached 1 Million)”.
To this, Vikas gave the troll a befitting reply. “Bache kuch productive karo…yaha gyan mat banto… (Kid please do something productive don’t lecture here),” he wrote.
Here is his post and the comment

In the meantime, Virat Kohli has been going through a bit of a lean patch with the bat. The 33-year-old has not scored a lot of runs for his international team or his Indian T20 League team, Bangalore. However, he has taken a break from the game for India’s five-match T20I series against South Africa.
Many pundits of the game have suggested that this is a much-needed break for the former Indian captain. He will next play in India’s one-off Test match against England to be played on the 1st of July.
