Shoaib Akhtar wants Salman Khan to play him in biopic


Former Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar who is famously known as the ‘Rawalpindi Express’ has said that he wants Bollywood actor Salman Khan to play his role if a biopic is made about him.

“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 in an email interview from Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

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

Shoaib Akhtar took more than 400 wickets in international cricket and was the fastest bowler in the world. On his day he would terrorize the batsmen with his ferocious fast bowling and totally bamboozle his opponents.
