It seems like Mirza was a bit late to notice the tweet and it was only on June 3 that she replied and retweeted Chhetri’s viral video. Not just that, she also asked him to get her tickets for their next match on June 4. “Legend! can I have tickets pls”, she tweeted. Seeing her excitement, the footballer had the perfect response, “Only if you promise to sort me out with some when you’re playing next!”

While the tweet exchange seemed to be on a light note, Netizens didn’t take it that way. While Chhetri’s fans had a good laugh, others started trolling Mirza for asking for a free ticket.
