World Cup 2019: “Nobody Dare Say Anything Abt Mahi”- ’83’ Actor Saqib Saleem Warns His Social Media Followers!

India lost the first Semi Final match against New Zealand in the ICC world Cup 2019 played at Old Trafford, Manchester on Wednesday which left the nation heartbroken. While the cricket fans were left disappointed with team India’s ouster from the tournament, they stand by the players and captain Viral Kohli praising M. S. Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja for their excellent efforts. Even after a shaky start, Jaddu and Mahi’s partnership got the team close to the score, but they still couldn’t make it. A section of the cricket lovers are however bashing Mahi for the loss of India believing he is past his prime and should be saying goodbye to Cricket. Dhoni trended on Twitter all night with praises coming his way and also some venomous tweets against him post team’s loss in India Vs New Zealand semi-final. Bollywood actor Saqib Saleem who’s portraying Mohinder Amarnath in the upcoming Kapil Dev biopic ’83’ which stars Ranveer Singh in the titular role, did not take the criticism coming Mahi’s way lightly and warned his followers on Twitter to refrain from doing so.
