Mumbai: Veteran actor Nasseruddin Shah slammed Virat Kohli for his verbal spat with Australian captain Tim Paine.
The Two captains broke out in a verbal duel which snowballed into quite a tiff on Day 4 of the Perth Test, so much so that the umpire had to intervene.
While Indian fans supported Virat Kohli his Australian fans slammed him.
However, Virat’s behavior did not go well with veteran Bollywood actor Naseeruddin who called him the “world’s worst behaved player” in a facebook post.
“Virat K is not only the worlds best batsman but also the world’s worst behaved player. His cricketing brilliance pales beside his arrogance and bad manners. And I have no intention of leaving the country by the way,” Shah posted in his facebook account.

“I know he’s your captain but you can’t seriously like him as a bloke,” the stump mic caught Paine as telling Vijay.
The Kohli-Paine war of words began on Day 3 when the Indian skipper took a jibe at his Australia counterpart.
The incident happened after the visitors went for a huge caught-behind appeal in the final over of the day.
The stump microphones picked up Virat Kohli saying, “if he messes it up, it’s 2-0,” while referring to the Test series lead. Tim Paine promptly replied: “You’ve got to bat first, big head”.
The argument spilled over into Day 4 and umpire Chris Gaffaney had to intervene as Virat Kohli and Paine got involved in another argument.
