Aamir Khan meets Shahid Afridi in Mecca


Mumbai: Oct 23, 2012


Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi met Indian actor Aamir Khan at Mecca, where the superstar is visiting with his mother.


The duo also met Maulana Tariq Jamil, NDTV reported.


Afridi arrived in Saudi Arabia after playing two-match T20 series between Pakistan All Star XI and International World XI in Pakistan.


Earlier, Pakistan’s flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi had hit out at disgraced former captain Salman Butt for criticising his performance in the World Twenty20 in a TV show, saying that a player who “tainted the name of the country” should not have been hired as an expert.


“I think the media should be careful while hiring experts and only hire those of clean background,” Afridi said taking a swipe at Butt who appeared on ARY television recently as an expert for the World Twenty20.


Butt had called Afridi a disruptive force in Pakistan cricket and criticised his World T20 performance.
