On social media, misinformation can spread like wildfire. Recently, a post featuring power couple Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli dining at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant went viral, causing a stir among online communities. Allegations surfaced that the cricketer, known for his adherence to Hindu dietary practices, had consumed beef, sparking widespread criticism. In this article, we look into the details, separating fact from fiction.
The post, which gained traction across various social media platforms, presented a seemingly authentic receipt from Gordon Ramsay’s renowned restaurant. Highlighting Beef Tartar and Beef Wellington, it ignited a wave of backlash against Virat Kohli. However, a meticulous fact-checking process has uncovered startling revelations about the authenticity of the content.
Contrary to the claims made in the post, fact-checkers have determined that the receipt showcasing the controversial items is, indeed, fabricated. Moreover, the captivating photograph depicting the couple and their daughter enjoying a meal has also been proven false. The incident in question took place not in the United States but in Dubai during the ICC T20 World Cup in 2021, contradicting the narrative presented in the viral post.

The official website of the restaurant chain provides accurate information, listing its presence in various prominent locations across the United States, including Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Lake Charles, Southern Indiana, and Baltimore.
To further dispel the misconceptions, a Reddit post surfaced, featuring a jaw-dropping receipt from another diner at Ramsay’s restaurant. The exorbitant bill detailed in the post left the user astonished, showcasing the diversity of dining experiences at the renowned establishment.
Following a thorough fact-checking process, it has been revealed that an identical bill was previously utilized to level allegations against Rohit Sharma, suggesting a pattern of misinformation targeting cricketers.
