PK actor Anushka Sharma, who welcomed her first child Vamika with cricketer Virat Kohli on January 11, 2021, had earlier requested her fans and media to respect her child’s privacy by not revealing her face to the public. Media and fans have been respectful of the couple’s decision and have shared blurred-out images of the toddler. However, a recent incident during the ongoing India Vs SA ODI match being held in Cape Town has enraged the fans.
Anushka Sharma-Virat Kohli’s daughter shown on live broadcast
During the ongoing tournament, actor Anushka Sharma came to support her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, along with her one-year-old child Vamika. During the LIVE broadcast, the camera was panned towards the 33-year-old actor in the stands with her daughter Vamika. The duo was captured on LIVE television resulting in the child’s face being revealed to the public. It was not long before the video and the pictures of Vamika were shared on social media.

Many fans were quick to slam the broadcasters for revealing Anushka Sharma’s daughter’s face on LIVE television despite the couple’s request to refrain from sharing her pictures. One fan opined that it was not right to reveal Vamika’s face even if it was done accidentally. They wrote, ”Anushka & Virat have always been saying that they want to keep Vamika private from media As a mother Anushka brought her to the match Even after so much of requesting the Cameraman revealed vamika face on Live.”
It was so wrong from SuperSport to show Vamika’s face especially when Virat and Anushka had specifically asked not to do so.
People just don’t respect the privacy of other people!!!!

Guys, please please do not circulate Vamika’s photographs on social media. The cameraman showed her and Anushka but please respect their privacy and keep whatever photographs you have, to yourself. #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli

Earlier last month, Anushka Sharma had penned a note to the paparazzi who respected couple’s choices and did not reveal Vamika’s face. She wrote,
”We are deeply thankful to the Indian paparazzi and most of the media fraternity for not publishing pictures/videos of Vamika. As parents, our request to the few who carried the images/videos will be to support us going forward. We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice restraint in the matter. A special thank you to fan clubs and people of the internet for going out of your way to not post images. It was kind and highly mature of you.”
