Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has said he would love to play a Salman Khan’s role from 2010 movie “Dabangg” should he ever get a chance to be in a Bollywood movie.
Bollywood’s rich past includes some strong connections with Pakistan. Despite the tension between the two neighbours, Bollywood is highly popular in Pakistan. At a time when the bilateral relation between the arch-rivals is at an all-time low, there is no stopping to the long-existing cross-border cultural exchange.
Not surprisingly, Bollywood is highly followed in Pakistan. And Sarfraz Ahmed’s recent comment makes it even more clear. In an interview with Geo News’ programme Score, the Pakistan star revealed that his favourite Bollywood actress was none other than Katrina Kaif. He then went on to reveal the character he would like to play if he gets a chance in Bollywood.
“If I ever get a chance to work in a film, I’d love to play a role similar to that of Salman Khan’s Dabangg character,” he said, adding that his “favourite heroine is Katrina Kaif”.
Meanwhile, Pakistan and India are all set to lock horns against each other in the upcoming Asia Cup.
The arch-rivals have not played a full bilateral Test series since 2007. Pakistan had visited India for three Tests and five One-Day Internationals.
They played a short series of three ODIs and two T20s in India in December 2012. But otherwise, both have faced each other only in the ICC organised events or the Asia Cup. They last played against each other in last year’s Champions Trophy.
In their last meeting, the Sarfraz Ahmed-led side had defeated India in the final of the Champions Trophy to lift the title for the first time.
