Anushka Sharma, who has been constantly emphasising on the need for privacy for her and Virat Kohli's daughter Vamika, thanked the paparazzi and fan clubs for not publishing pictures or videos of Vamika. Anushka's statement arrived a few days after paparazzi took pictures of Vamika when the actress and Virat Kohli were at the Mumbai airport last week along with Team India. Addressing the fan clubs and the paps, she wrote "It was kind and highly mature of you." The actress' statement addressed to the paparazzi and her fan clubs read, "We are deeply thankful to the Indian paparazzi and most of the media fraternity for not publishing pictures/videos of Vamika. As parents, our request to the few who carried the images/video will be to support us going forward. We seek privacy for our child and would like to do our best to give her a chance to live her life freely away from media and social media. As she is older we cannot restrict her movement and hence your support is needed so kindly practice restraint in the matter." She added, "A special thank you to fans clubs and people of the internet for going out of your way to not post images."
