Ranveer Singh giving words of comfort and hope to a Pakistani fan has really won us over.
Pakistan’s ill-fated loss yesterday against India at Old Trafford, Manchester was awful. Pakistan suffered in the hands of the undoubtedly adept Indian cricket team, however, that didn’t stop many Pakistani fans from batting out savage self-deprecating jokes online…

For many though, it really was a belittling defeat, but there were many Indians there in the heart of it all to comfort despondent Pakistanis…
Ranveer Singh was among many celebrities present from both sides of the border and was seen vibrantly frolicking around the ground, even taking a selfie with Zainab Abbas and Wasim Akram.
