Amitabh Bachchan gets trolled 

After 20 years, diverse team of France lifted the World Cup Football 2018 trophy by registering a 4-2 victory against Croatia in the final game. Soon after the victory, social media exploded with wishes pouring in from all the corners.

Celebrities around the world congratulated the team on their phenomenal success. Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan also took to Twitter to congratulate the French squad but his tweet didn't go down well with a section of netizens. He wrote, ''T 2868 - Thats it then ... AFRICA won the World Cup 2018  !!!"

Well, this points out at the number of African origin players in the team. Out of 23 players, 16 belong to the immigrant background as their families have emigrated from African nations like Morocco, Angola among others. 

However, his tweet wasn't well received and was met with critical reactions. One Twitter user wrote, ''Wrong sir. :) France and it’s diverse team did'' while another wrote, ''Didn’t expect this Tweet from Big B. If a nation could integrate their immigrants to the mainstream of society so successfully, it’s a huge credit to them.''

Check out the reactions below:

On the professional front, Amitabh Bachchan will next be seen in Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs of Hindostan, co-starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
