Clad in the jersey of Men in Blue, Saif went down the memory lane and expressed his enthusiasm.
"The match between India and Pakistan is fantastic and especially in school, colleges as we use to take it as a big game and used to be a very special day," the actor told ANI.
He went on to give some advice to fans on both sides of the border, "I know how passionate people are towards the game but the only thing I would like to say is that ultimately it is a game and let's respect each other and play the game with the right spirit. Obviously, the players will but the fans and viewers should also do that. Take your lead from the players, show your passion but behave also."
