“I loved interacting with people in Bombay (Mumbai), Salman and Shah Rukh have really taken care of me like a younger brother. And whenever I was with their families and their circles, they made sure to always protect me.”
“Unfortunately, it’s been five years, I haven’t been able to come to India. But there was also a time when people had started asking me to get my Aadhar and Ration Cards made because of how much I worked there,” Akhtar further added.
I have very fond memories of India: Shoaib Akhtar
The last time India played a bilateral series against Pakistan was in 2012-13 when Pakistan defeated India 2-1 in the ODI series. Shoaib Akhtar said that he hopes the relations between India and Pakistan get better in the coming months and he is waiting to come back and work in India.
“I have very fond memories of India, I just keep on praying (to come back), I recently told my friends, too, that hopefully India and Pakistan will have better relations in a few months and I’ll be the first person to land in India and make tons of money (chuckles),” Akhtar said.
