Former Pakistan’s cricketer Wasim Akram will reportedly make his acting debut in Nikhil Advani’s next film, Patiala House. The film will also include stars like Akshay Kumar. The film also stars Rishi Kapoor, Dimpla Kapadia and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’s heroine Anushka Sharma. Patiala House is apparently based on cricket and Wasim Akram will play coach to Akshay Kumar’s cricket team
It will be shot in London and is expected to release next year in Pakistan. The music will be scored by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics will be written by Sameer. The last movie by Nikhil and Akshay Kumar was Chadni Chowk and it was not much of a hit in Pakistan. Whereas his directed movie Kal Ho Na Ho was a great hit in Pakistan.
Pakistan has yet another reason to be proud of Wasim Akram. Wasim Akram has been a great cricketer and one hopes that he will be as good in acting and make Pakistan even more proud.
