Former Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar, who is judging a comedy show “Mazzak Mazzak Mein" nowadays, talked about his bond with superstar Salman Khan recently.

The bowler who was touted as Rawalpndi Express said that he often visits Salman Khan's house to meet his family.

“Anyone who will go to them, I am sure they will come back with a smile on their face as they have a big heart. They are extremely helpful and great people,” he added.
