I guess what we have here is a mutual admiration society. The captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team the very dashing and macho Shahid Afridi it seems behaves like a star-struck little fan every time he comes across the Baadshah of Bollywood, ShahRukh Khan. ShahRukh had earlier at a function said that “No matter how big a star I become, all the girls keep telling me ‘You are not like Shahid Afridi’.”
The source is also very reliable. It is Shahid Afridi’s younger sibling Javed Afridi. When the most-awaited match of the 2011 Cricket World Cup was being played between India and Pakistan at Mohali, Afridi’s younger brother was commentating live at a radio station in India. It was during this course of time that he let the listener’s into the ‘life and lies’ of the Pakistan Cricket Team’s Captain. We now know that Shahid never misses any of ShahRukh’s films. SRK’s last film ‘My Name is Khan’ has found a place in Shahid’s heart, who has seen it over a dozen times reveals Javed. When Shahid found out that SRK would not be making it to Mohali to watch the semi-final clash between the titans his mood dropped and he was really disappointed.
