Arhhan Singh has been in news for the last few days for all the wrong reasons. Arhhan was the man actor Anushka Sharma called out in the middle of the road, on camera, and schooled for littering on the streets. A video of the incident uploaded on social media by her husband and cricketer Virat Kohli had since gone viral.
So, who is this Arhhan Singh? While nothing much could be known about the man who calls himself “A God & a Man, a Philosopher & a Realist, a Dreamer & a Cynic, a harmonious polarity, a Contradiction… a Human Being!!!” in his Instagram bio, it has now come to light that Arhhan is no stranger to Bollywood.
He seems to have shared screen space with Bollywood biggies including Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Shahid Kapoor, albeit as a child artiste.
According to one of his Instagram posts, Arhhan featured alongside SRK in his 1996 film English Babu Desi Mem.
As per reports, he later did Raja starring Madhuri Dixit, and his most recent appearance was in Shahid Kapoor’s Paathshala.
What gave him more fame, however, was the few seconds’ video of getting scolded by Anushka Sharma.
As the video went viral, Arrhan took to various platforms of social media to present his counter-argument. He wrote: “Disclaimer: I have no desire to gain any mileage from this post of mine… Horrible! So I happened to carelessly Litter an 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!”
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!!!
Later, Arhhan’s mother Gitanjali Elizabeth Singh slammed Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. She posted a long message on her Instagram account and blamed the couple for their cheap stunt on cleanliness by targeting her son without any proof.
@anushkasharma @virat.kohli The last thing we would want is to get publicity out of your cheap STUNT in the name of CLEANLINESS! You both posted a video for your fans n followers by VIOLATING Basic Rights to privacy &you shamed my son in the video as well in your post content you both may be who you are in your fields, with millions of followers & all the PR backing you… you may be payed for your campaigning or maybe doing it for sheer publicity As a mother,I would like to state that you have not only shamed my son @arhhansingh on social media by not blurring his face, but youve also exposed him to unwanted hostility…. and danger from fanatics for such a small thing that you claim he has done but have no proof of anyways ? I am concerned about my sons SAFTEY !!! how dare you crush somebody’s image/and morale and reputation and expose him to public hate, a boy who is on the verge of starting his ventures, ..just to prove what good citizens you both are to increase your fan following ?How dare you?? If you both really cared or bothered about cleanliness , then you would actively do something about all the garbage in your own lane.. you would make a noise and use your VOICE to urge the municipal authorities to take action atleast in the lane where you live,to start with, which you haven’t . Posting videos of fake bravado just to fool your followers. If your intention was genuine then you would pull over and politely correct the person for littering IF THEY DID in a decent and real manner… and not by displaying such a rude and arrogant attitude, and then posting it for the world to see! You have caused a lot of grief with your post & this is morally and humanitarianly very wrong. You may be #AnushkaSharma or #viraatkohli in your house or on screen & the field…but on the streets you are just a citizen trying to correct another… DO IT WITH KINDNESS ….fear karma . And just FYI , he did not react badly, not coz of who you both are.. we couldnt care less,but only because he has a decent upbringing ! Unlike people like you, who seem to think that you are the empowered ones to talk and treat people as you wish !
The incident took place on June 16 when the NH 10 actor asked the chauffeur of the car to pull up and then scolded the man sitting in the backseat for littering the road.
