Pakistan’s brilliant performance in Wednesday’s match cemented its place in the final of the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy.

Celebrities across the nation congratulated the cricket team on their fantastic performance.

While everyone lauded the terrific game, celebrities from across the border couldn’t help but comment on Team Pakistan’s marvellous win!

Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor, for one, too took to Twitter to express his feelings about Sunday’s big final which, everyone is expecting, will be Pakistan vs India.

Team India is yet to qualify for the finals if they beat Bangladesh in the second leg of the semis, but the Bobby star went a bit over confident and tweeted, “Congratulations Pakistan! You enter finals? Wow! Good to see you wearing our colour BLUE! Get ready to be BLUED now! We will BLUE you away!”

His tweet obviously didn’t go down too well with the overexcited Pakistanis, who had a thing or two to say about it.

This will never, ever get old.

These memes though…

Yep, yep.

Very poor choice of words, indeed.

Talk about making sense!

Oh Rishi, we realise you’re also excited for an India vs Pakistan final but let’s just focus on defeating Bangladesh today?

    Congratulations Pak team on your win. Final should be between traditional rivals: India v/s Pak. There is nothing wrong in Rishi Kapoor’s tweet.Recommend

    And yet Pakistanis are crazy for Bollywood, love Bollywood actors/actresses and cannot live a single day without Bollywood. When will we wake up and realize reality!Recommend

    A cheap shot as usual. I don’t find it worth discussing. The one who plays well will win simple. But keep in mind pak have still more wins at record and we are unpredictable too. Love n peace for allRecommend

    There is nothing horrible in his comments. Everybody knows relationships between India/Pak are based on hatred against each other because of Kashmir. Our culture is same. Let us enjoy game on Sunday. Best team will win. @Jawad: Recommend

    He did congratulate before being a little overexcited. I did not find anything wrong or offensive about it. Just that India hadn’t qualified by the time he wrote this. Forgivable hai.Recommend
