A post about a joyous occasion brought some flak for Jasprit Bumrah after he shared his reception pics with wife Sanjana Ganesan. Netizens latched on to the use of a sparkler during the celebration, claiming that the cricketer had previously advocated against the use of firecrackers. Koena Mitra used some wordplay around his name to join in the fun along with the section of Twitter calling him out.
Koena Mitra tweeted on Saturday in reaction to the reception pictures making headlines, she twisted his surname Bumrah to read 'Bam raha'. The actor quipped that netizens were stopping the person, whose name had the word 'bam' (bomb), from bursting bombs. The Musafir star used the hashtag that the Indian pacer had used in his tweet from 2017, 'say no to crackers.'
जिसके नाम मे बम रहा है, उसको बम फोड़ने से रोक रहे हो 😛 #saynotocrackers— Koena Mitra (@koenamitra) March 20, 2021
Netizen were impressed with Koena's sarcasm and responded that they were not stopping him from bursting crackers, but that he was 'stopping others from doing so, but doing it himself.'
