However, the link to his Pinterest account disappeared from his Twitter and Instagram profiles as of Tuesday morning.

Kohli was heavily criticised by the netizens for his initiative to run the campaign for Pinterest and keeping the history of anti-firecrackers propaganda he had run in the past during Diwali.

Trollers were right upon their tasks and asked the Indian skipper to focus on the game rather than advising them on how to celebrate Diwali.
