Team India cricket captain Virat Kohli had posted a 13-second video on his Twitter account making an appeal for a noise-free Deepawali.
But his video message, which does not have any dialogue, has not been taken nicely by his followers on the microblogging site.
The video featuring Virat reads “This Diwali spread light not noise” with the noise of firecrackers in the background and Virat is looking visibly distressed.
He even puts his fingers in his ears to shut out the noise.
Following this appeal, the Twitterati reacted in their own unique style.
