Just days after the video of Anushka Sharma scolding a man on a Mumbai road for allegedly littering, it has emerged that he has acted in several films including one opposite Shah Rukh Khan as a child actor.
Anushka’s husband Virat Kohli had posted the video, which earned the couple plenty of condemnation on social media, where the users felt that their decision was more to garner ‘cheap publicity’ than had anything to do with their concern for cleanliness.
Although, both Virat and Anushka had received support from two BJP ministers of the central government namely Kiren Rijiju and Ravi Shankar Prasad, both the man in the video and his mother had taken to social media to lash out at Virat and Anushka.
C’mon, Virat & Anushka need publicity!! They would rather crave for privacy!! Our conduct reflects our mentality. Civic sense is social ethics and ethical behaviour doesn’t come with wealth & education. Let’s keep India clean. #SwachhBharat

Gittanjali Elizabeth, mother of the man in the video, had taken to Instagram to trash the celebrity couple accusing them of ‘violating basic rights to privacy’ of her son in the video.
Elizabeth warned both Kohli and Anushka to ‘fear karma’ after exposing her son to ‘unwanted hostility’ and compromising his ‘safety.’ She started her post by a caveat that ‘the last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS!”
Elizabeth’s scathing response came after her son Arhhan Singh posted his response on social media. In the video posted by Kohli, Anushka was seen scolding for throwing plastic on the road. Arhhan, in his response, had lashed out at Anushka accusing her of lacking verbal etiquette.
Arrhan Singh, child actor in Shah Rukh Khan’s movie
What appeared to escape everyone’s attention was that Arrhan was once a very famous child actor and had acted opposite Shah Rukh Khan in English Babu Desi Mam. His character Mayur Varma had turned out to be quite central to the film’s story. Arrhan had shared a still from the film around 17 months ago on his Instagram page.
He has also acted in Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor starrer Beta before acting in popular TV serial Dekh Bhai Dekh. More recently, he was seen in Shahid Kapoor’s Pathshala.
