Sports biopics are not a new concept in other countries. However, former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar’s biopic will be the first in Pakistan, as the ace legend pacer announced the upcoming release of his biopic on social media.

Akhtar, on Sunday, tweeted a preview for the movie with the description, “Beginning of this beautiful journey. Announcing the launch of my story, my life, my biopic, “Rawalpindi Express — Running Against The Odds”.

“If you think you know a lot already, you’re mistaken. You’re in for a ride you’ve never taken before. An international project by Q Film Productions [and the] first foreign film about a Pakistani sportsman,” he said.

The short clip showed Akhtar’s figure sprinting with his back turned towards the camera in a hazy frame with train tracks in the centre. A train siren could be heard in the background, but no locomotive could be seen, as the camera focused on him and his number 14 jersey. The film’s release date was also mentioned in the teaser.

Bringing to fruition an idea that the filmmaker had back in 2016, Muhammad Faraz Qaiser described it as “a dream come true.”

The former Pakistan cricket team pacer took 178, 247, and 19 wickets in three different formats during 46 Tests, 163 ODIs, and 15 T20Is. Batters were afraid of him because of his speed, not because of his wicket totals. The fastest ever recorded cricket delivery is 161kmph from him (vs New Zealand, 2002).

The father of Sania Mirza speaks out about her marriage to Mohammed Shami

On Thursday, a number of reports surfaced from regional media sources claiming that two of the nation’s most popular and accomplished athletes, fast bowler Mohammed Shami of the Indian cricket team and tennis star Sania Mirza, the ex-wife of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, are getting married in August.

She now has a strong reaction to the reports and her father, Imran Mirza, has denied the unfounded rumours. It’s all garbage. “She’s never even met him,” he said on Friday to a media outlet in India.

Relevant to mention is that Mirza, who is presently on the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, was married to Malik from 2010 until January of this year, when it was officially verified that she had filed for divorce from her former spouse through Khula (a Muslim woman’s right to do so). With the Pakistani cricket player, she has a five-year-old son named Izhaan.

Yet, Shami and Hasin Jahan, the woman he married in 2014, are no longer together. Between them, they have a child.

In a recent interview with a digital magazine, Kubra Khan delved into her character development in the television series ‘Noor Jahan’ and openly admitted to feeling vexed and exasperated while watching the initial episode of the show. She expressed sympathy towards women, such as Safeena [Alina Abbas], who are disregarded by their spouses.

“Initially, it was vexing to observe.” Upon viewing the initial episode, specifically the first 15 minutes, she confessed to feeling irritated.

Khan expressed his annoyance, stating that despite his involvement in the production and participation in the shoot, he found himself angry due to his prior observations of similar occurrences in real life.

“Furthermore, Musaddiq Malek, the director, has skillfully woven the elements of the film together. His work is truly remarkable and clever,” she commented, specifically referring to the opening scene in which Hunaid, played by Noor Hassan, forgets his wife Safeena’s birthday but manages to organize a lavish celebration for his mother, portrayed by Saba Hamid, on the same evening.

“The ‘Sinf-e-Aahan’ actor stated that people perceive the story as relevant and relatable, with each individual feeling a personal connection to it,” the actor shared. “Men who are overly dependent on their mothers should refrain from getting married until they are capable of assuming the responsibilities associated with being a husband.”

Khan, known for his discerning project choices and avoidance of clichéd roles, affirmed that ‘Noor Jahan’ stands apart from conventional ‘saas bahu’ dramas.

Continuing to hint at her character’s growth, she stated, “You will have to wait and observe the drama to find out if she will testify, join the villainous side, or alter the dynamics of the family.”

In addition to Khan playing the role of Noor Bano, the film ‘Noor Jahan’ features a talented cast including Saba Hamid, Ali Rehman Khan, Noor Hassan, Zoya Nasir, Hajra Yamin, Ali Raza, Yousuf Bashir Qureshi, Mahmood Aslam, and Alina Abbas, among others.
