But there are some people who came in support to Steve Smith from Bollywood i.e. Varun Dhawan.

Before Varun Dhawan, Indian cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir and also international players like Shoaib Akhtar, Shane Warne and Kevin Pietersen also have come out to show their sympathy with the players.
Know what they wrote for the tearful player Steve Smith:
While cricket needs to be corruption-free but feel sanctions on Aussies bit harsh. Are @stevesmith49 & @davidwarner31 paying for revolt for pay hike? History has it administrators deride those who standup for players’ cause. Classic case: Ian Chappell #BallTampering #StevenSmith— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) March 29, 2018
Hope in time I can earn forgiveness says Steve Smith.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) March 29, 2018
He has already got mine.
Cricketers have done worse & never admitted their guilt.#StevenSmith
They are regretting and hurting and will have to live with the consequences of their act. Spare a thought for their families as they have much to endure along with the players. Time for all of us to take a step back and give them some space.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) March 29, 2018
At least Steve smith has the courage to admit like a man but absolutely gutted to see Steve smith breaking down @ the press conference & also they way people treating him @ Airport & in Australia its sad ..— Shoaib Akhtar (@shoaib100mph) March 29, 2018
leave that poor chap alone now ..
‘Good people make mistakes’ .. I honestly think Steve Smith & Cam Bancroft are decent guys who had a moment of madness .. they deserve a 2nd chance and hopefully get the right support around them now .. Takes a lot guts to do what they did today ..— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) March 29, 2018
Well, the Judwaa 2 actor wrote on his Twitter handle about the Australian player who has been banned for one year by the Cricket Australia over ball-tampering: ‘Watching Steven Smith apologise and look broken is very sad. I'm sure the fans will forgive him. He looks beyond remorseful. I hope and pray he will come out of this ordeal a better cricketer. The mental the emotional trauma I'm sure is bigger than any ban.’
