Filmmaker Kabir Khan is known for directing blockbuster movies including Bajrangi Bhaijaan, New York, Ek Tha Tiger, and Kabul Express among others. The director is all prepped up for the release of his upcoming flick ’83.
Starring Ranveer Singh in the lead role, the highly anticipated sports drama movie revolves around the 1983 Indian Cricket Team’s victory. The country’s team won World Cup at the Lord’s.
Kabir Khan was recently trolled by the Twitterati for a statement he made. In a casual chat about his movie, the director gave out incorrect details about the cricket. According to a report, he said, “Till, 1983, India had never won a single match in the history of the World Cup.”
People on Twitter gave an immediate response to the tweet. They pointed out the flaws in the information by revealing how India did beat East Africa in 1975. They also provided the full detail by saying that our country won the World Cup in ’75 by 10 wickets. The Twitter users were disappointed by Kabir Khan’s statement. Here is how the Twitterati responded.

Ridiculous statement by @kabirkhankk— Lock Omoplata (@LockOmoplata) January 13, 2020
For the fact..India DEFEATED WEST INDIES in the same world cup BEFORE FINAL.
West Indies LOST ONLY 2 matches in that world cup.
Both against India.
The OTHER match in World CUP 1983 where India DEFEATED WI before defeating WI again in final. pic.twitter.com/B0wIAaSzfp
Not entirely true! India had won against East Africa in 1975 World Cup... by 10 wickets! Farokh Engineer was Man of the Match. Do correct it if you've put it in the film! @kabirkhankk https://t.co/BLwGbyejtT— Navneet Mundhra (@navneet_mundhra) January 13, 2020
