Indian pacer Irfan Pathan who has been subject to social media trolling on several occasions was, for once, not on the receiving end.
When Irrfan Khan bagged the Best Actor trophy at the Filmfare Awards on Saturday for Hindi Medium , little did he know the Indian pacer would get credit for it.
It all started when a leading magazine posted a tweet to congratulate Khan but ended up tagging the cricketer instead. They wrote, "It was definitely well deserved, @IrfanPathan"

Pathan blessed with a sense of humour had a cheeky response to the tweet. He wrote, "Thank u n sorry I couldn’t make it but u can send the award to me at my home ;);)"
