Shoaib Akhtar, Harbhajan Singh To Lead Tv Comedy Show Indian Mazak League

Mumbai: Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar is ready to cheer TV viewers, but not with his splendid pace bowling. The Rawalpindi Express will entertain people by participating in a TV comedy show.

Shoaib will soon be seen judging a comedy show 'Indian Mazak League.' The show will also have Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh as judge and Shoaib is looking forward to have a great time with him. The show is slated to be aired on Life Ok channel by this month end.

"Harbhajan and I have had some interesting battles on the cricket field. He is a good competitor and now we will be a team on the comedy show. This will be different but yet fun. I hope we can do justice to the job given to us. There can't be a better job than being paid to enjoy jokes on a television show," said Akhtar.

"I am a peace-loving and fun-loving person. More than being a judge I am happy to be a part of 'Indian Mazak League'. With the kind of talent that we have on the show it will be fun. I will be paid to enjoy the jokes. I don't think there can be a better job than this," Shoaib said in a statement here.

He revealed that he had great fun in their dressing room, while playing as each cricketer used to crack jokes. Pakistan dressing room was and is the best dressing-room for a cricketer. There is so much banter, harmless leg-pulling, one-liners in Pakistan team that my jaws use to ache laughing so much.

"It was fun to be with guys like Mohammed Yusuf, Shoaib Mallik, even the seniors like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul Haq were unbelievably funny. It used to be a laugh riot," the fast bowler said.

He also had some memorable fun time with Indian players like Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag. As for comedy, the 40-year-old cricketer likes the work of Akshay Kumar, Javed Jaffery and Omar Sharif.

"They are all wonderful and extremely talented. Sometimes I am in awe of their work. As for the movies, I enjoyed 'Andaz Apna Apna', 'Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron' and all Amitabh Bachchan movies which had comedy or fun angle in it," he said. Shoaib thinks spontaneous jokes are good fun. To me humour is something that a person can take home and even laugh out loud alone reminiscing that. Like a good joke or a funny incident stays with you for long.

"At the same time, I find some comedians crossing the line of decency which is not right. A humour that I can watch with my family and still don't feel embarrassed about is what I am after," he said.
