Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar, popularly known as 'Rawalpindi Express', says it is for his fans and filmmakers to decide whether a film based on his life should be made or not.

But he wants Bollywood's superstar Salman Khan to play his role “in the biopic, if that happens”.

Shoaib Akhtar set to judge comedy show on Indian TV channel

From Bhaag Milkha Bhaag to Mary Kom to Sultan and Azhar, biopics on sports stars seem to be the flavour of the season in Bollywood and Shoaib Akhtar, who will be seen judging an upcoming comedy show Indian Mazak League, agrees with it.

“I know that is the trend these days, but I am no one to decide that. If people think that my life is interesting and inspiring, then they can make a movie out of it. If not, then let it be. It is for fans and filmmakers to decide,” Akhtar told IANS.

And Akhtar has his preference. “I’d like to see Salman Khan playing my role in the biopic, if that happens.”

vijay | 6 years ago | Reply That will be super flop movie . He need actor with animal instinct. Salman Khan does not fit in his character. Salman khan looks cheerful and innocent.
