Actor Amitabh Bachchan joined scores of other social media users in sharing the viral video featuring UK-based Pakistani activist-fan, reportedly called Momin Saqib, as he funnily berates his country’s cricket team for their defeat in Manchester on Sunday. The veteran actor retweeted comedian-actor Vir Das, who had shared the said video.
Sharing the video, Vir had written: “Hilarious. Part hahahahaha Part awwwwwwww :)” The video went viral after his country’s cricket team’s poor show on Sunday. The fan bemoans how cricket is among the few things that brings happiness to Pakistanis amid the country’s various problems. He is particularly peeved at reports that before the crucial match, members of the cricket team were busy having pizzas and burgers the night before. At one point, he even wipes his eyes.
