Yes, You read that right.

All these years, Shoaib Akhtar has made us all fall in love with his brutal speed and the straight forward attitude. Akhtar, who has inspired millions of cricketers out there was a super fan of the actress Sonali Bendre.

Well, who doesn’t?

But the cricketer was one of a kind, craziest. He used to carry her picture on his wallet and his room consisted of a lot of her pictures. He even wanted to kidnap her out of the affection. The cricketer fell in love with Sonali Bendre after watching the movie English Babu Desi Mem.

Unfortunately, Sonali Bendre who isn’t a cricket fan didn’t know who Akhtar was.

She said in an interview: “I don’t know any Pakistani cricketer named Shoaib Akhtar as I’m not a cricket fan at all. It’s funny that every time India plays Pakistan, the media swamps me with calls to find out about him. I’ve heard he’s my fan. All I can say is I’m thankful for that.”

Meanwhile, Sonali Bendre battled cancer successfully and recently returned to India after her treatment in New York. Right since her return, the actress is busy creating awareness about cancer.
