Pak Pacer now gave statement about Bollywood ‘King’, said- Shahrukh Khan was asking…

New Delhi. Pakistan’s fast bowler Sohail Khan has made another interesting claim. This time he has said that Shah Rukh Khan was asking about him during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2008. Shah Rukh Khan is the co-owner of the IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). The franchise had signed Shoaib Akhtar with high hopes, but the fast bowler played only three matches before being ruled out for the season.

With their premier fast bowler out, KKR needed a replacement and according to Sohail Khan, Shah Rukh Khan had inquired about Mohammad Hafeez. Sohail Khan said in Nadir Ali’s podcast, “Hafiz Bhai contacted me that Shoaib Akhtar is not fit, Shah Rukh Khan is asking about you. I told him… Shah Rukh is asking.
