Former Pakistani Bowler Shoaib Akhtar will debut as a judge on a comedy reality show 'Indian Mazak League' which will telecast on ‘Life Ok.’
Earlier, Shoaib Akhtar was seen on several TV shows and now will judge upcoming comedy show that will feature comedians from different regions of India.
Along with Shoaib Akhtar, Bowler Harbhajan Singh will also be seen in the comedy show. "It will be interesting to see how he rates contestants on their comic quotient." a source said.
"I've had my share of fun in the dressing room with a-joke-a-minute contemporaries like Mohammad Yousuf and Shoaib Malik and seniors like Wasim Akram and Inzamam-ul-Haq. My namesake takes mimicry to another level. There was so much of banter and harmless leg-pulling that my jaws would ache. Among the Indian cricketers Ashish Nehra and Yuvraj Singh are a riot, as also Virender Sehwag," said Shoaib Akhtar
"I have my take on a particular situation while Inzamam bhai or Afridi (Shahid) would look at it differently. Professional sport can be stressful so it's important to keep the atmosphere in the dressing room light," he says.
Bhajji has always been a good competitor and they have had some interesting battles on the cricket field. "Now we will be on the same team and I'm looking forward to that. I hope we can do justice to the job” , Akhtar said.
Shoaib said, "For me humour is something you can take home and laugh out loud reminiscing about a joke or a funny incident when recalling it alone," he points out, saying he doesn't like comedians crossing the line of decency. I like Akshay Kumar, Javed Jaffery and our own Omar Sharif who are extremely talented. And I've really enjoyed Andaz Apna Apna, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron and all Amitabh Bachchan comedies."
