Sharing the same spirit to protect the environment yet Milind Soman is praised while people have been taking a dig at Virat Kohli and called him a hypocrite.

Apparently, actor Milind Soman and cricketer Virat Kohli both have urged people to protect the environment but the reactions they received are far from similar.

Milind Soman

Milind Soman has recently gone to a Shiva temple with his family and on Monday, he uploaded a number of pictures from his holy trip on his Instagram account. He and Ankita, his wife, explored places together and as the two climbed up the hill, he mentioned a very important thing in his post.

Milind Soman said that he picked the garbage up on his way to the destination and later realized that the area of the temple does not have any trash can and the monkey pulled out the trash out of the bin and dragged it around.


In his new post, he urged all the people who visit the temple to take more care fo the surroundings, “be smarter than the monkeys”, and Milind also urged food production companies to begin making use of biodegradable packaging.

His caption went,

Small trek to a Shiva temple at the top of a hill today with @ankita_earthy and @somanusha To make it more fun and to show my respect to the deity, I picked up as much garbage as I could along the holy trail 🙈 Strangely, at the temple I was told by the caretaker that there were no dustbins because of monkeys throwing the garbage out of the bins, and all garbage would be burnt in the forest 😳
Point no.1 - I really think the time has come for us to be smarter than monkeys.
Point no. 2 - Food companies really need to start using biodegradable packaging so that more people can eat more junk, guiltfree 🤓"

Milind Soman has been involved with a lot of environment and health-related campaigns.

Virat Kohli

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli received troll on Twitter over his message to “anti cracker” on Diwali. He is in Australia with his squad and can be seen posting on social media a video message on the event of the festival of lights. He asked everyone to avoid lighting crackers on  Diwali in order to reduce pollution and protect the environment.

However, a new occurrence offended a lot of Internet users as a viral video on Twitter showed crackers being ignited during Virat Kohli’s birthday parties with his RCB teammates in Dubai. The celebrations also saw the participation of Anushka Sharma.

In the footage which was uploaded by RCB’s official account, crackers were seen to burst in the backdrop right before Anusha and Virat cut the cake together. The video has been spread widely on Twitter as fans called Virat Kohli a “hypocrite” for not following what he himself has been urging.

He was also slammed for the last year’s incident when Guruguram Municipal Corporation for washing cars by drinking water. Some have pointed out that crackers have been a part of IPL as well as other tournaments as they are extensively used post a final. A number of users also trolled Anushka Sharma via their messages.

On Monday, RCB went to clarify the Kohli birthday party video in Dubai and stated that the sown firecrackers were from the archival footage from Flag Day celebrations. They added that the franchise still remained committed to bettering the environment.

Numerous states in India had inhibited the use of firecrackers on Diwali to combat the hiking pollution levels. Uttar Pradesh, Telangana, Delhi, West Bengal are some of the states where firecrackers got banned on this year’s Diwali.
