- 17, November , 2022
NewsToday: Umair Jaswal, the country's leading singer and actor will now play a prominent role in Shoaib Akhtar's biopic 'Rawalpindi Express,' based on the life of former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar. Shoaib Akhtar's rapid bowling action and propensity to produce nasty bouncers made batters hesitant to stand on the wicket when he bowled, earning him the moniker "Rawalpindi Express" from the start of his career.
He was the quickest bowler in Pakistani history, with a bowling delivery speed of roughly 161.3kph. Umair Jaswal, a singer by profession, plays his character in the film. He said on Twitter, "I am honored to play Mr Shoaib Akhtar, a living legend, on the big screen in Rawalpindi Express." We are thrilled to bring you a first-of-its-kind biography film worthy of international praise. The former pacer announced earlier this month that a movie about his life's journey would be filmed.
Shoaib Akhtar tweeted the start of this fantastic journey-"Rawalpindi Express" Based on my biopic and my life story. The Shoaib Akhtar biopic will be released on November 16, 2019. This will be the first worldwide film to feature Pakistani athletes.
