Former Pakistan player and one of the greatest fast bowlers in the history of cricket, Shoaib Akhtar recently hosted a question and answer session on his official Instagram handle where several fans asked him a plethora of queries related to the gentlemen’s game and many other things.
During the interaction, a fan asked the Pakistani legend to name his favourite Indian actor and Akhtar was quick to give a special mention to Bollywood star Salman Khan.
Sharing a shirtless photo of Salman, the Rawalpindi Express also tagged him in his Instagram post.
Here’s see Shoaib Akhtar’s reply:
While Akhtar is one of the most active cricketers on social media, Salman also enjoys a huge fan following all across the globe.
Notably, this is not the first time when the 45-year-old has expressed his admiration for the veteran Indian actor. Earlier, Akhtar had said that Salman Khan should play the lead character if ever a biopic is made on his cricketing career.
“If ever my biopic is made, I want Salman Khan to play the lead in it,” Akhtar was quoted as saying by Pakistan journalist Saj Sadiq.
Shoaib Akhtar was known for terrorizing the batsmen with his lethal pace during his playing days. He represented Pakistan in 46 Test matches, 163 ODIs, and 15 T20Is, picking up 178, 247, and 19 wickets respectively.
