Actor Anushka Sharma has reacted angrily after a sportswear brand shared a post on Instagram featuring her pictures without her ‘permission’. She also asked the brand to take down the post. Taking to Instagram on Friday, the brand shared pictures of Anushka, in different outfits, to announce their season sale.
Anushka re-shared the post on her Instagram Stories, a few hours later. Anushka wrote alongside the post, “Hey, @pumaindia? I’m sure you know that you have to take permission before you can use my imagery for publicity since I’m not your ambassador. Please take it down! (angry face emojis).” Incidentally, her husband, cricketer Virat Kohli, had liked the original post.
