Choose between Pak cricket or Indian films, PCB chief tells ShoaibJanuary 15th, 2008 - 12:19 pm ICT by admin
Rawalpindi, Jan 15 (ANI): Amid reports that Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar was being offered roles in Bollywood films, PCB chairman Nasim Ashraf has reportedly warned him to take Pakistan cricket seriously, or quit it altogether to start his career in Indian films.
Addressing a media gathering here last evening, Ashraf said that Shoiab should pick either Bollywood films or Pakistan cricket, because both were full-time occupations and one could not do both simultaneously.
“Acting career in films is a round-the-clock job and playing for your national team is also a full-time occupation. Shoaib must adopt either of the two if he wants to play cricket for Pakistan in the longer term,” the Dawn quoted him as saying.
According to the paper, in the recent past Shoaib has been approached by a few Indian film producers for a career in films at Mumbai. (ANI)
