Over the last few months, India have been under the stranglehold of the massive coronavirus outbreak. At the present point in time, the country is third after the United States of America (USA) and Brazil as far as COVID-19 cases are concerned. From commoners to celebrities a number of people have been affected by the ungodly virus, one of them is the legendary Amitabh Bachchan.

The news broke a couple of days ago and wishes poured in for the enigmatic figure. In fact, three generations in the Bachchan family have fallen prey to the coronavirus. Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya couldn’t evade the wrath of the COVID-19 virus either. In India, the situation is getting from bad to worse as time is passing by.

In the meantime, Shoaib Akhtar, the former Pakistan fast bowler, also wished Big B for a speedy recovery. He took to Twitter and wrote, “Get well soon Amit ji. Prayers for a speedy recovery from all your fans across the border.”

However, Akhtar’s tweet didn’t go down well with one of the users on Twitter. Criticising Akhtar, the user replied to Akhtar and wrote, “across the border terrorists rehte hain..nhi chahye koi bhi speedy recovery wali dua.”

Nevertheless, Akhtar wasn’t much fussed by the brutal comment. Keeping a calm head, he delivered a strong message and also extended his blessings for the one, who trolled him. The veteran replied to the user and wrote, “Sunnay wali upar walay ki zaat hai. Kya pata kis ki sun lay bhai 🙂 Aap k label kernay se koi label ho nahi jata. God bless you.”

Here is Shoaib’s reply

India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads, both from the political and sporting fronts. Cross-border tensions in recent times haven’t done any good to their relationship either. The Pulwama Attack last year added fuel to fire. As far as cricket is concerned, the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had a disagreement over the Asia Cup.

However, the multi-nation tournament had to be postponed. For the time being, India and Pakistan only play in tournaments, organised by the ICC or the ACC.
