Two people having the same name can often lead to confusions and that is what exactly happened in a funny incident involving Irrfan Khan, the famous Bollywood actor and Irfan Pathan, the dashing cricketer from Baroda.
Irrfan Khan we all know is one of the finest actors in Bollywood and he has proved his talent even on the international pedestal. He has always left the audience spellbound his strong character roles in many movies and he is one of the most versatile actors in the industry.

Irrfan for his splendid performance in Hindi Medium was awarded the ‘Best Actor In A Leading Role’ award at the 63rd Filmfare Awards which were hosted by Mumbai on January 21. Hindi Medium was a magical film which left the audience in awe of Irfan Pathan and Saba Qamar. Irffan Khan, we must say deserved this award by all means and we are just so happy about it.
Irffan Khan Pours His Heart Out
Irffan Khan took to Twitter to share his feelings about winning the prestigious honor.

Femina Magazine Gives Twitter Its Dose Of Sarcasm
After Irrfan won the award, the very famous magazine, “Femina’ was one of the many who poured in love and wishes for the stalwart actor for his award. But the magazine goofed up and tagged the cricketer Irfan Pathan in a congratulatory Tweet.
Femina Magazine Wrote
It was well deserved @Irfan Pathan
Irfan Pathan Had The Wittiest Response Ever
The little mistake by Femina and the witty response by Irfan Pathan on being tagged served as the perfect feed for Twitter to have a fun field day. Twitter exploded with trolls and funny takes on the entire episode.

Irfan Pathan was at his wittiest self and thanked people for the award and also apologizing for having not made it to the award show. This response by Irfan Khan got Twitter in the fun mode and just like every time, this little mistake by Femina became a big butt of Twitter jokes.
