New Delhi: Commenting on the latest controversy over Shahid Afridi’s recent remark that Pakistan’s cricketers have received more love from the Indian fans as compared to their own fans back home, actor Fawad Khan on Tuesday said that his country’s T20 skipper’s comments were taken out of context.
While addressing the media, the 34-year-old actor said Afridi’s comments were misquoted and, therefore, it was taken in wrong context.
“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. He is a very proud Pakistani. And we are proud to have him as a representative of our country,” said Fawad.
The actor further said that being a cricket fan he is very excited about the much-anticipated India-Pakistan match which will take place on March 19 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Fawad was spotted in the national capital promoting his upcoming film ‘Kapoor and Sons’.
