Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has slammed Australian media for comparing Indian skipper Virat Kohli to US President Donald Trump. The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday had compared Kohli to Trump, saying “Kohli has become the Donald Trump of worldsport”.
“Aussie media calls Virat, Donald Trump of sports !!…Thank you Aussie media for accepting that he is a winner and the PRESIDENT,” Bachchan, 74, tweeted.
