Facing severe backlash for his controversial response to a fan, India captain Virat Kohli on Thursday said that he is all for "freedom of choice" urging fans to "take it light".

Responding to messages during the launch of his mobile app, Kohli was reading tweets and Instagram messages before coming across a user, who said the Indian skipper has nothing special in his batting. Instead, he likes to watch Australia and England batsmen, who look a bit more stylish. "I loved watching Sachin, Viru (Virender Sehwag), Sourav (Ganguly), VVS (Laxman), Rahul (Dravid) bat but also loved Mark Waugh, Brian Lara and so many others", BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary was quoted saying by the Times of India.

"Okay, I don't think that you should live in India then", Kohli said, looking to camera, while sitting on a couch.

While adding that he didn't mind any sort of dislike towards him, the Indian skipper felt that one should get his priorities sorted before posting such comments. Kohli wrote in his reply to the fan.

The comments didn't go down too well with Kohli, especially the "these Indian" bit.

Melbourne attack: One dead after deadly Bourke Street knife rampage
Video has emerged of a man lunging at police with what appears to be a knife before being shot in Melbourne's Bourke St. Speaking at the scene, Superintendent David Clayton said: "Police quickly responded to the incident".

During the course, he also asked his fans to enjoy the festive season with love and peace rather than pushing the negative things harder.

Some others mocked Kohli's response. The India captain, who has been rested for the T20I series against a West Indies, embroiled himself in fresh controversy after a video of him went viral on social media.

"I guess trolling isn't for me guys, I'll stick to getting trolled!" he tweeted. Even the film actor Siddharth went on to say that Kohli made a mistake and wasn't pleased a bit with it.

"I spoke about how "these Indians" was mentioned in the comment and that's all".

If criticism from a top BCCI official was not enough, Kohli might have also violated his contract because of his statement. I'm all for freedom of choice.
