Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar, now a judge on the comedy show Mazzak Mazzak Mein, says he often visits Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s house to meet his family.

“I often visit Salman Khan’s house whenever I am in India. I don’t go for Salman, I go there to meet his parents. He is an amazing personality and I really admire how Salman and his brothers respect their parents,” Shoaib said in a statement.

“Anyone who will go to them, I am sure they will come back with a smile on their face as they have a big heart. They are extremely helpful and great people,” Shoaib added.

Shoaib Akhtar wants this Bollywood actor to play him in biopic

Mazaak Mazaak Mein, aired on Life OK, is based on the idiosyncrasies of various regions represented by teams of comic superstars.


This isn’t the first time Shoaib has shown his fondness for Salman and his family. A few years ago, it was reported that the two superstars went on a run together, shirtless, on the streets on Mumbai to see who was more fit.

    I have never understood why Pakistanis only follow “Muslim” bollywood actors? Is this a sign of insecurity?
    They should remember that their ancestors were most probably either budhists or hindus.Recommend

    Is this the same person who once suffered from an embarrassing disease which I don’t want to repeat here?
    If so, Salman Khan should stay clear of him. Recommend

    Salman’s life style has not been much different than Shoaib’s. Both should stay away from each other…Recommend

    Akshay Kumar is no less than Salman Khan by any standard, look how he(Akshay) rose up to the present position without any filmy back ground. Try to look forward beyond the noses of Khan actors.Recommend
