Their bromance went up a notch when SRK came to know that Shoaib has recently made his Twitter debut.
The two share a warm bonding which is reflected in a video Shoaib shared through his handle apparently to let his fans know that he has officially arrived on social media. The fast paced bowler started the video with a little introduction and then gave his fans a surprise.
Shoaib and Shah Rukh may be friends now but there was a phase when the cricketer was not very happy with King Khan. Akhtar played for Shah Rukh’s Kolkata Knight Riders in 2008 after which he slammed KKR for not paying him his dues despite repeated reminders for two years.
In his autobiography he even mentioned, he was allegedly cheated by Shah Rukh Khan and former IPL Chairman Lalit Modi. “Shahrukh and I talked about my not being happy with the money settled on me. Shahrukh and Modi got me to agree. I should have never listened to Modi and Shahrukh,” he stated.
