"If Virat Kohli scores well, it's attributed to me, if he doesn't, it's because of me. I'm blamed for everything. I don't understand it," said Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, with a tinge of irritation in an interview to The Times of India, recently.

Sharma recently came under a lot of heat from Twitter users when her cricketer boyfriend Kohli scored a single run in the World Cup semifinal against Australia. She was in Sydney to cheer the Indian team on, but looked shocked and distressed after Kohli was caught out by Brad Haddin off Mitchell Johnson's bowling.

Sharma, who's otherwise an outspoken and upfront person, told ToI that she feels "embarrassed" when Kohli blows her kisses from the cricket field. "My brother still makes fun of me," she said. "It's a stadium and people turn around and look at me. I feel shy," she said in the interview.

When asked if being under a constant public and media scrutiny put their relationship under strain, Sharma said she does get the usual curve balls once in a while.

"I had a back problem, so I've been going to the physiotherapist at the Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. Someone took a photograph of me when I was walking out of the hospital and published a news item making it sound like I developed the problem after my trip to Australia. I was like, how are they connected? My back problem happened on a film set," she said.
