Pakistan seems to be riding high on Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) historic win in the General Election 2018. After Imran Khan’s heartfelt speech on Thursday, people have yet another reason to fall in love with the former cricketer for his eloquence and demeanor. Interestingly, the outpouring of love has been beyond borders and we can’t help but love how some popular celebrities from India, actors, and journalists combined have sent their congratulatory wishes to our kaptaan.
Let’s take a look.
Ayushmann Khurrana gushes like a true fan of IK and sends warm wishes on his victory, whilst hoping for harmony between the two countries.
His victory speech at 92 cricket World Cup made my father predict- “yeh banda pakka ek din Pakistan ka PM banega.” And it happened today. Congrats @ImranKhanPTI sir. Have always been a fan. Now you have the biggest responsibility of bringing peace and harmony in the subcontinent.
