Zainab Abbas, the sports presenter from Pakistan, is currently in England to cover the ongoing Test series between the two countries. She posted the picture of the Indian actor enjoying the game in the stands and captioned it as, “Pic shared by @Furqan013 – there’s actor Irfan Khan enjoying the match at Lord’s #ENGvPAK. Twitterati was divided over the picture as some argued that the person could be a look-alike of the Bollywood actor.
But a user by the name Ali Nomi soon cleared that the Irrfan was sitting in front of him only and he also denied to click any pictures with him. “He was sitting in front of me. A few people came and asked him for a picture but he refused.. I think because of his health. He looked really really weak,” the user wrote in his tweet. While the prominent actor is recovering from the disease, his fans are praying for him and hope that he recovers soon.
