Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli have been hitting headlines ever since they shamed a man in a recent social media post for throwing garbage on road.

Last week, Virat Kohli shared a post both on Twitter and Instagram and it took no time to go viral on social networking sites. In the 17-second-long video, the Pari actress is seen scolding a man sitting in a chauffeur-driven sedan for throwing a plastic wrapper out of the window.

"Saw these people throwing garbage on the road and pulled them up rightfully. Travelling in a luxury car and brains gone for a toss. These people will keep our country clean? Yeah right!!! If you see something wrong happening like this, do the same and spread awareness," the Indian skipper wrote while sharing the video on social media.

Meanwhile, in the latest development on Saturday, the man, identified as Arrhan Singh sent a legal notice to the celebrity couple.

"Hi. My legal advisors have sent a notice to Mr. Virat Kohli and Mrs. Anushka Sharma Kohli. As the ball is in their court, no comments in all fairness I should await their response," Arhhan told Zee News.

Earlier responding to Virat's allegation Arhhan in an Instagram post accused the celebrity couple of abusing their popularity. He slammed Anushka for ‘ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person’ and Virat’s ‘trashy mind’ for exposing him to unwanted hostility.

Disclaimer: i have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine... Horrible! So I happened to carelessly Litter a sq mm of plastic while driving ! A car passing by rolls their window down and there we have our wonderful @anushkasharma ranting and yelling like a crazy roadside person! While I’m apologetic for my carelessness , Mrs Anushka Sharma Kohli a little etiquette and politeness in ur dialogue wouldn’t have made u a lesser star !! There are all kinds of manners and hygiene .. verbal etiquette is one of them ! The garbage that mistakenly went out of the window of my "luxury car"... Was way less then the garbage that came out from your mouth... From ur "luxury car's" window... Or the trashy mind @virat.kohli to shoot and post this online... For whatever gains... Now thats some serious trash!!!

While some of Anushka's industry colleagues, like Karan Johar, praised her for raising voice against littering around, the video evoked condemnation from Twitterati across the world.
