It is advisable to report these accounts so that people are not misinformed about the boy who has just come to this world. There is reason why celebs like Virat and Anushka do not reveal faces of their childred on social media as in this age of Deepfakes and AI, their face and voices can be used in a negative by some users to get attention. At the same time, it is also important for these social media websites to act accordingly and remove these fake social media accounts. 

Fans must also understand that no parents will make social media accounts of their kids so early after birth and they should avoid falling into such traps by some attention-seeking users. Hopefully, Virat and Anushka will post a clarification that their kids – Vamika and Akaay – do not own any social media account so that fans stop following these fake accounts.   

As far as Virat’s return to the Indian team is concerned, he is set to miss the remaining two Tests vs England as well. BCCI, when announcing the squad for the three Tests, had stated that Kohli will not feature for India in the Test series. The former captain, that means, is likely to make a comeback in IPL which starts at March end. Anushka, on the other hand, after her recovering from pregnancy will put all her energy on Jhulan Goswami biopic release while she continues to perform motherly duties.
