Taking to his favorite social media platform, Instagram, the 33-year-old has expressed his concern about the behavior of some of his fans.

His further statement was that the incident had caused him to become paranoid about his personal privacy, and he was not comfortable with this kind of fanaticism that was directed towards him.
It is unacceptable for me to accept this kind of fanaticism, and this kind of invasion of my privacy. In addition, Kohli further urged fans not to treat people as a commodity for entertainment, and to respect their privacy,” he stated.
Among the top sports personalities in the world, the flamboyant batter is one of the most well-known athletes on Instagram, being one of the most followed athletes in the world.
