Indian skipper Virat Kohli has finally watched actress and wife Anushka Sharma's Zero and had some nice things to say about the movie.

Released on Friday, the much-awaited flick opened to polarising reviews worldwide. While movie critics hailed the performances of the stars, the Twitterati didn't take it easy on the romantic-drama, giving out brutally honest reviews.

Directed by Aanand L Rai, Shah Rukh plays the role of a vertically challenged man, named Bauaa Singh. While Katrina plays a popular actress battling alcoholism and Anushka essays the role of a wheelchair-bound scientist.

Taking to Twitter on a lazy Sunday, Kohli praised his wife's performance, calling it 'outstanding,' for it was a challenging role according to the Indian Team captain.

"Saw @Zero21Dec and loved the entertainment it brought. I enjoyed myself. Everyone played their parts well. Loved @AnushkaSharma performance because I felt it was a very challenging role and she was outstanding, 👌👌" Kohli wrote.

Kohli, who is no stranger to online trolling, soon faced the wrath of online users, who called him a 'liar' and blamed the praise on his 'husband duties', which pressurised him in to lauding his wife's performance.

On the cricket front, Kohli has received backlash from fans on how he has been behaving on the field during the ongoing Test series in Australia.

Slamming this and making a reference to his 'move out of India' remark that had the social media up in arms recently, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah called Kohli the world's 'worst behaved player' while also calling him world's best batsman in a Facebook post, triggering a controversy last week.
