The Indian actor had been in the line of fire ever since his tweets against Pakistan ahead of final

LAHORE: (Web Desk) – Indian actor Rishi Kapoor has finally laid down arms and accepted the defeat, congratulating Pakistan over historic victory against India in the Champions Trophy final on Sunday.

Rishi Kapoor had sent some provocative tweets ahead of the final, saying ‘Baap khel raha tumhare saath’ (your father is going to play with you) in a message to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Kapoor had come under heavy fire from Twitterati in Pakistan and had come to discuss cross-border terrorism and diverting the conversation to political matters.

He had responded to a few Pakistani tweeps later as well. Adeel Hashmi was one of them. He went on to tweet the cartoon made by Pakistani cartoonist Sabir Nazar for Samaa TV and appreciated the art, saying that he had said those hateful things over ‘too many provocations’.

Kapoor had his hopes as late as Hardik Pandya’s late outburst when he sent Shadab and other spinners for big sixes late in the Indian innings but eventually gave up when the last Indian wicket also fell for 158 and Pakistan registered a historic win over the arch rivals in a major ICC tournament.
