There Was Nothing Between Sonali And Me, Says Shoaib Ahktar, Defends Sania Mirza
After a report in an Indian publication claiming that ex-cricketer Shoaib Akhtar wanted to kidnap Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre and carried her picture in his wallet, the Rawalpindi Express decided to clear the air once and for all on his YouTube channel.
“Once and for all, I am saying to you, Sonali Bendre aur mera kuch bhi nahi thha aisa. Kuch bhi nahi thha. Stop this speculation for once and for all. I am requesting you all,” the fast bowler declared.
He also said that he was never a huge fan of Bendre as the report in the International Business Times stated. I was never a huge fane of Sonali Bender, though I admit she is a very beautiful woman. However, I recently became a fan of her seeing the way she courageously fought against cancer, he added.
The cricketer also gave his opinion on the Sania Mirza controversy. He defended the Indian tennis star, who came under wide criticism on social media after a video of her having sheesha with her husband. Pakistani cricketer Shoiab Malik became viral.
Sania Mirza is unlucky because, through no fault of her own she is at the receiving end of vitriol from both India and Pakistan, Ahtar said adding that eating dinner with your husband is no crime.
