KRK grabbed the headlines after he claimed that Anushka Sharma was behind her
cricketer husband Virat Kohli’s “depression”. He wrote in a tweet that she must
have “put in his head” that he’s depressed because he’s the first Indian

the tweet some time later after receiving a huge backlash on social media.
this year he caused a humdrum on social media when he announced the release of ‘Deshdrohi
2’, a self-proclaimed blockbuster that’s apparently going to be “bigger than
Bahubali”. The first Deshdrohi was released (and tanked) 14 years ago. The
poster of Deshdrohi 2 features KRK in all his glory, wearing a black ensemble.
The poster reads that the movie has been “directed by KRK produced by KRK”
