Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor is one celebrity who is known for not mincing his words. The 64-year-old actor has a strong social media presence, thanks to his tweets which are just spot on. In last few years, Kapoor has tickled our funny bone with his dead-pan humour, however at times his straight-forwardness has also landed him in controversies. Even when he decided to give it back to trolls, he did it in his inimitable style.The Karz actor, who himself is an avid cricket fan, took a dig at arch-rival Pakistan with his latest Tweet that triggered a backlash from a barrage of Pakistani cricket fans. As Pakistanis were celebrating their win over England in Semi-Finals of Champions Trophy on Thursday, Kapoor took to Twitter and wrote, “Congratulations Pakistan! You enter finals? Wow! Good to see you wearing our colour BLUE! Get ready to be BLUED now! We will BLUE you away!”
Congratulations Pakistan! You enter finals? Wow! Good to see you wearing our colour BLUE! Get ready to be BLUED now! We will BLUE you away!

Given the love and hate relationship Pakistan shares with India, Pakistanis were bound to react and that also coming from a Bollwyood star, a Twitter war was inevitable. Here is how Pakistani cricket fans reacted to Kapoor’s Tweet
I’d flush this tweet into the toilet but there aren’t many of those in India _
