William Shakespeare’s quote ‘What is in a name?’ was perhaps taken too seriously by Femina India.

The magazine tagged Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan to congratulate him on ‘winning’ the Best Actor award.

And for those who haven’t gotten the twist yet, it was meant to be for actor Irrfan Khan.

“It was definitely well deserved, @IrfanPathan,” the tweet read.

Pathan didn’t shy away from a tongue-in-cheek reply, tweeting: “Thank u n sorry I couldn’t make it but u can send the award to me at my home.” Now, that’s one way of dealing with it.

The magazine was quick to realize the gaffe as it took down the post – but not before Pathan took them down with his cheeky response.
