On Wednesday, Pakistan will face New Zealand in the first T20 World Cup semi-final at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar chatted with fans ahead of the crucial match.

Akhtar posted the footage to social media. Akhtar can be seen in the video sitting inside his car, asking fans about the ongoing T20 World Cup. While a couple of fans gave suggestions to Pakistani team ahead of the semi-final game against New Zealand, one of them turned out to be a huge fan of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

On Akhtar’s request, the fan mouthed one of Shah Rukh’s most famous sentences from the blockbuster film ‘Badshah.’


However, the discourse was too long, and Akhtar had to cut him off with a witty one-liner.

“Beta Shah Rukh Khan hai, itne lambe dialogue nahi bolte (Boy, he is Shah Rukh Khan! Why are you mouthing such a long dialogue?),” Akhtar said.

Since then, the video of the conversation has gone viral, receiving thousands of likes and retweets.

After losing their first two group games, Pakistan was on the verge of exiting the T20 World Cup.

The Babar Azam-led team, on the other hand, won their following two games to stay in the competition.


The Netherlands stunned South Africa while the odds were still stacked against them.

Pakistan needed to beat Bangladesh in their final game to advance, and the 2009 T20 World Cup champions achieved just that.
