The 2017 Champions Trophy came to Pakistan in an epic battle at The Oval, with Pakistan’s cricketing prowess doing the talking, rather than cheap social media antics, which seemed the way to go in India. Besides Virender Sehwag’s ‘Baap-Beta’ comments, Rishi Kapoor added to it all y branding Pakistan a “terrorist” country.
Achcha choddo yaar. Tum log Jeeton aur hazaaron Baar jeeton sirf Terrorism bandh kar do yaar. Mujhe haar manzoor hai. We want peace and love

Yes Pakistan, you have defeated us. Well played, outplayed us in all departments. Many congratulations, I concede. Best wishes!

After he made his demeaning comments about the country his Indian team was about to face in the final, only a couple of days later, his team was humbled by a rampant Pakistan team, who silenced Rishi Kapoor, critics in India and around the world. So, Pakistanis were anxiously waiting to hear what their Bollywood favorite had to say with regards to why he commented the way that he did. Kamran Shahid on his show On The Front, called him up and let him explain his actions to the curious people of Pakistan.
Here’s what went down in the interview..
Pakistanis were keen to rub salt on his burning wounds after the defeat..

His comments were the total opposite of what most of Bollywood was saying..
Congrats to team Pakistan for sterling performance.

We look forward to even greater Pakistan vs India battles, but we’d prefer if they were kept to the cricket field.
