BOLLYWOOD actress Zareen Khan has responded to claims that she was romantically linked with a Pakistani cricketer.
An Indian news media outlet alleged on Thursday, October 4, 2018, that she was in love with Fakhar Zaman, a cricket player in Pakistan’s national team.
The outlet claimed that: “Zareen Khan is in love with Pakistan’s cricketer, Fakhar Zaman.”
“She likes his hairstyle, his looks and the way he plays cricket.”
In the past, the media has publicised Bollywood actresses dating Pakistani cricketers.
An example was Wasim Akram and actress Sushmita Sen, however, it did not work out and they split up.
Zareen is the latest Indian celebrity to be linked romantically to a Pakistani cricket player.
Fakhar, who is the fastest Pakistani batsman to score 1,000 runs in One Day Internationals, is an emerging star which is why Zareen has taken a liking to him, according to the Indian media.
They said: “This is the reason that Zareen Khan likes Pakistan’s emerging star.”
Zareen on the other hand responded to the news on Twitter by deeming it totally fake, subsequently silencing rumours of dating Fakhar.
