Unless you’re living under a rock, you would know that London is currently playing host to the ICC World Cup. Celebrities, notable sports personalities and cricketing fans have made their way to London to catch all the matches and the city is abuzz with lots of excitement. Celebrities including Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor have also been spotted in London and let’s just say, we’re currently experiencing a major case of FOMO! Perhaps the most anticipated match of the tournament took place between Pakistan and India and fans were glued to their television screens as the arch rivals went head to head at Old Trafford.
Bollywood actor, Saif Ali Khan was also in attendance at the match and was accompanied by his co-star Aalia F. The two cheered on the boys in blue and spirits were high throughout the match. The Cocktail actor however, experienced an unpleasant incident during the match.
A video recently surfaced online, in which the Sacred Games actor was being followed and then insulted by a Pakistani fan. The man in question can be heard hurling insults at Saif Ali Khan and ridiculing him at the same time. He could be heard calling Saif names like ‘Indian cricket team’s 11th water boy’. The man then went on to further mock the Baazaar actor and addresses him as the “actor who who always kills Pakistanis in his movies.” Aalia was not spared at the hands of the fan either as he made fun of her, calling her Saif’s ‘bitiya rani’.
It appears the man couldn’t get enough as he is seen in the video continuing to pass unpleasant, unnecessary remarks. Saif Ali Khan however, was a class apart and took it in his stride to ignore the man. He chose instead to avoid the drama and made sure Aalia too was taken care of. And that, ladies and gentlemen is how to royally ignore unnecessary drama and unwanted negativity. The video has since been removed from Instagram. But you can check it out here:
Here’s how some fans reacted to the video:
Saif Ali Khan is currently in London with his family and is shooting for his upcoming film, Jawaani Jaaneman in which he stars alongside Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaia F. We can’t wait to see the duo on screen!
