When Irrfan Khan bagged the Best Actor trophy for 'Hindi Medium', little did he know that the Indian pacer would get credit for it.

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"
