When actor Rishi Kapoor wished Pakistan on their independence day, he wouldn’t have thought that he would be trolled for it. He wrote “Wishing all my friends from Pakistan a Happy ‘Youm-e-Azaadi’ ka din. Happy Independence Day. Let peace, brotherhood and love prevail (sic).”
The 64-year-old actor received a lot of flak from Indians; with some of them even asking him to leave India.
While Rishi kapoor was being slammed, former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi wished India on August 15 and that garnered a lot of attention and appreciation from fans. “Happy Independence Day India! No way to change neighbours, let’s work towards peace, tolerance and love. Let humanity prevail.# HopeNotOut (sic),” Afridi tweeted.
While many Indians thanked the cricketer, other Pakistanis wished India a happy Independence Day too.
