Amitabh Bachchan Mistakenly Called the Pakistani Kid the Future of Indian Cricket:
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a video on Instagram featuring a child’s impressive batting skills. In his post, Bachchan praised the child’s technique and referred to him as India’s future in safe hands. However, he mistakenly identified the child as Indian, which prompted Pakistani actors and singers to correct the error.
Actor Gauhar Mumtaz commented on Bachchan’s post, clarifying that the child is actually from Pakistan. Mumtaz mentioned that he had seen the video of this child on a Pakistani platform before, but acknowledged that regardless of our different countries, if we come together to play, we can shape the future of cricket. He also expressed his admiration as a big fan of Bachchan.
Singer Asim Azhar also commented on the video, addressing Bachchan as “Dear sir.” He expressed his fandom as a big fan from Pakistan and confirmed that the child featured in the video is indeed from Pakistan, as clarified by Gauhar Mumtaz. Azhar emphasized that Bachchan’s sentiment about securing the future of both countries through cricket is indeed accurate. He also reminisced about the days when stars from both India and Pakistan used to watch each other play during cricket matches.
