Anushka Sharma has issued a statement a few hours after her and Virat Kohli's daughter Vamika's photos went viral on social media. The incident took place at the India-South Africa match when the camera person panned the camera towards Anushka and Vamika celebrating Virat's on field performance.

The photos and videos quickly went  viral on social media and were widely shared by fan clubs on Twitter and Instagram. Anushka and Virat have kept Vamika's identity closely guarded ever since she was born in January 2021. The actress issued a statement as the photos made its way to the Internet. 

It reads: "Hi guys! We realise that our daughters images were captured at the stadium yesterday and widely shared thereafter. We want to inform everyone that we were caught off guard and didn't know that the camera was on us. Our stance and request on the matter stays the same. We would really appreciate if Vamika's images are not clicked/published for reasons we have explained earlier. Thank you! (sic)." Within minutes of releasing the statement, Virat Kohli also posted the same on his Instagram Story.  

While some fans were ecstatic about seeing Vamika for the first time and gushed over her cuteness, many others were not impressed with the breach of privacy. Even though Vamika has been papped earlier with her mum Anushka while leaving Mumbai at the airport, the photos were not widely published due to the couple's privacy request. However, this on camera goof-up seems to have  taken social media by storm and has sent Virushka's fans into a tizzy.
