Pakistani cricketers have not come to India for a long time due to the ongoing estrangement between India and Pakistan. But Pakistani players used to mix with Indian cricketers and Bollywood stars. Shoaib Akhtar, who used to be a part of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
He was a friend of Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. Being a part of KKR, Shoaib and Shahrukh used to be seen together on many occasions, while a rumor also spread that Shoaib Akhtar and Salman Khan ran shirtless in Bandra.
Recently, while talking to Sportskeeda, Shoaib Akhtar revealed whether he ran shirtless with Salman Khan or not. He said that I, Salman Khan, and Katrina Kaif were together. Before leaving, Salman asked me to have food with him. Now Salman Khan is Salman and he cannot see certain things. For example, if your hand is empty, they will give you a watch. If your shirt has become dirty because of the party, they will give you a new shirt.
Shoaib further said Salman Khan gave me a new shirt that day. We were almost the same size and I was only at his house that day. Then we had dinner and I returned to Lahore. Here I saw the morning news in which it was written that Salman Khan and Shoaib Akhtar ran shirtless in Bandra. Akhtar told me that this rumor spread like wildfire and Shahrukh Khan asked me, how much truth is there in this story. He called and asked if this is true, then I told him that nothing like this had happened. I was at Salman’s house, he gave me his shirt because mine was dirty, we ate and I came back. It was just fake news and we didn’t run shirtless.
