Team India’s World Cup run ended at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday.
Even as most fans agreed that India had a terrible day on the field, some people decided to troll Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma for the loss of Virat Kohli's wicket and the subsequent batting collapse. There was, however, a far bigger number of people tweeting in support of Anushka and even her industry stars showed solidarity with the NH10 producer-actor on Twitter.
Priyanka Chopra: So horrible to c a supportive girlfriend being lynched for a game she just watched!!Stop with the disrespect! #StillBleedBlue @AnushkaSharma
Abhishek Bachchan: @anirbanblah @AnushkaSharma these are the type of people who will never have wives or girlfriends.
