Former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has had enough of the rumor mill. He has finally spoken about his alleged affection for the Bollywood diva, Sonali Bendre.
Recently, a number of Indian media outlets had reported that the former speedster has a crush on Sonali Bendre. They go on to add that he wanted to kidnap her in case she turns down his marriage proposal.
Furthermore, these reports also claimed that Akhtar used to carry her pictures with him in his wallet.
However, in a video posted on his official YouTube channel, the Rawalpindi Express denied all these unwarranted speculations.
The world’s fastest bowler said he has neither met Sonali Bendre and nor was he a fan of her. However, Shoaib bhai did admit that he was seen a couple of her movies. We like that kind of honesty to be honest.
Shoaib Akhtar took this chance to speak about Sonali’s recent struggle against cancer. He said admired how she fought against it, and termed her a role model for others.
To wrap it up, it’s her fight with cancer that made Shoaib a fan of Sonali Bendre.
