It was an affair made in heaven as all the stars from the Tinsel town get down to gather and witness the making of a routine event. Yes, we are talking about the 63rd Jio Filmfare Awards, a routine affair that witnessed the night filled with dazzling performances and emotional speeches from the winners.
A day after Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan won the ‘Best Actor’ award at the Filmfare Awards it was veteran pacer of Indian Cricket team Irrfan Pathan who enjoyed the credit for it. The goof-up that stole the limelight of the show came from the leading magazines in India. In a bid to congratulate the actor, magazine mistakenly tagged Pathan in their congratulatory message on Twitter. “It was definitely well deserved, @IrfanPathan,” the magazine wrote.
Pathan, who is known for his quick wit, replied by saying, “Thank u n sorry I couldn’t make it but u can send the award to me at my home.”
Twitterati could not stop laughing at the sequence of events and applauded Pathan for his sense of humour. After being omitted from the Baroda team during the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, Pathan has been looking for other options and has recently sought an NOC from Baroda as well. “I have made this decision keeping in mind the current scenario and the current plans of the BCA with regard to my position in the team. I feel that my professional services can be utilised in a better manner and to the best of my abilities with a different team at this stage of my career,” Pathan wrote in an email which the Indian Express has in its possession.
