An advertisement aired by Pakistani TV channel ahead of the India Pakistan ICC World Cup. The ad received a severe backlash from the Indian audience.
What’s in the Ad?
A person wearing an Indian cricket jersey is seen sipping tea. The incident was similar to what happened with Abhinandan during the time of interrogation. People have drawn comparisons between the man in the ad with Air Force pilot’s signature handlebar moustache.

What triggered the Indian audience was when he said: “I’m sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this” to all the questions asked regarding the playing strategies in cricket.
Also at the end when he is done sipping tea, he leaves, an interrogator says “Ek second Ruko! Cup Kahan leke ja rahe ho? (Wait for a second! Where are you taking the cup?).” Cup, in this case, refers to the trophy as the word was used as a pun.
As a result, Internet gave some savage replies to the ad by tweeting:
Let them keep the ‘chai ka cup’ only, we’ll get the World Cup 😀😃
