Saif Ali Khan with his upcoming movie ‘Jawaani Jaanemann’ co-star Alaia Furniturewalla had a gala time cheering for Team India at Old Trafford, Manchester during the India Vs Pakistan match held this weekend on June 16th in England. Their pictures and videos took over the social media and the ‘Sacred Game 2’ actor also spoke to media before entering the stadium ahead of the match wishing India for the victory. India won the match over Pakistan by 89 runs. Along with Saif-Alaia(the daughter of Pooja Bedi who’s making Bollywood debut with ‘Jawaani Jaanemann’ playing his onscreen daughter), there were also other celebrities present at Manchester like Ranveer Singh, Shibani Dandekar, Rakul Preet Singh etc. The Indian citizens back home and abroad celebrated team’s win and multiple pictures-videos have been viral since.
In one of the videos Ranveer Singh is seen consoling a Pakistani fan after their team lost the match and it has been winning the fans on both sides.

Unfortunately another video on the contrary featuring Saif Ali Khan is in very bad taste as the voice heard in the video is making fun of the ‘Sacred Games 2’ actor at Old Trafford, Manchester ahead of the India Vs Pakistan match. Saif and Alaia are making their way to the stadium when they are captured on mobile by someone walking beside them and the person heard in the video who is reportedly a pakistani journalist is heard saying – “Ji, jis tarah ki aap dekh sakte hain ki ye Indian team ke jo 11th player jo water boy hain ye aa gaye hain inhone filmon mei pakistan ke khilaaf bohot.. bade inhone hamare bande maare hain! Ye bade mashallah inhone jazbe se apne mulk ko support kiya hai aur kitne hamare filmon mei bande maar diye! Hain na! Sir thank you so much for blessing us with your presence. Aur ye inki bitiya rani hain. aur ye jaa rahe hain… Saifu!!!! hey!”.
The video that surfaced only a day ago has gone viral now with Indian fans lashing out at the journalist for the misbehavior.
The video in all probabilities is fake and edited though as the sound seem dubbed on to it and mixed with the original ambience. Whether this happened on the spot or not, the person who did it for entertainment purpose has failed in his attempt and being criticized for the bad humor.
We also showed you how the Indian and Pakistani celebrities Ali Zafar, Raageshwari, Rahul Vaidya, Mawra Hocane and others were spotted enjoying the match from the stands together.
