The former Indian captain said he was shocked by the behavior of the “fans” and asked that his privacy be respected.
“I understand that fans get very happy and excited to see their favorite players and get excited to meet them and I always appreciated that,” Kohli said.
“But this video here is horrifying and it made me feel very paranoid about my privacy. If I can’t have privacy in my own hotel room, where can I really expect any personal space?
“I’m not okay with this kind of fanaticism and absolute invasion of privacy. Please respect people’s privacy and don’t treat them as a commodity for entertainment.”
Reuters has contacted the hotel for comment.
Australian batsman David Warner said the video – which showed Kohli’s bags, wardrobe, bathroom and clothes – was “ridiculous” and “totally unacceptable”.
India was beaten South Africa Sunday in their Super 12 match at Perth Stadium.
