“I understand that fans get very happy and excited seeing their favourite players and get excited to meet them and I’ve always appreciated that. But this video here is appalling and it’s made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I cannot have privacy in my own hotel room, then where can I really expect any personal space at all?? I’m NOT okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and not treat them as a commodity for entertainment,” said Kohli in a long Instagram post.

Meanwhile, his brother lashed out at the hotel saying someone must take accountability for the breach in privacy. “This is really very unprofessional whom so ever did it, im assuming it must be the hotel staff only , else if its some other fans its a total disaster for the hotel management… WHERE IS THE SECURITY AND PRIVACY OF THE GUEST… this is very alarming,” he commented on Kohli’s post.
