Afridi’s comments taken out of context: Fawad Khan

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Actor Fawad Khan says that Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi's comments, about Pakistan's cricketers being loved more by Indians than the fans in his country, were blown out of context.

The 34 year old Pakistani heartthrob, who was in the capital to promote his upcoming Bollywood film "Kapoor & Sons", said the issue will die down in sometime. "What happened with Afridi, I think it happens everywhere and anywhere. Somebody is always there to get involved and create an issue saying 'You said wrong or did wrong'. When Afridi said, 'Indian fans have given us more love than what we get in Pakistan,' it was in another context, but something else was made out of it."

"I feel he gave the statement just to ease up the environment. This is a momentary thing. Somebody has just tried to misuse the quote. That will die with time. It doesn't mean that anyone can question his patriotism. He is a very proud Pakistani. And we are proud to have him as a representative of our country," he added.

A day after his comments, Pakistan cricket captain Afridi was dragged to court for "committing treason" and "hurting sentiments" of Pakistanis.

Team India and Pakistan will lock horns on March 19 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata and the "Khoobsurat" actor said, like any other fan he too is excited about the match. "I am excited. There is always an excitement of an India-Pakistan match. It is one of the best and a fun competition. When I was kid, I used to take the results to heart. Now it's just an enjoyable match for me," he said.
