Fawad defends Afridi's comments; says cricketer is a proud Pakistani

Coming to the defence of Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi for his comments that he has received more love in India than he has received in Pakistan, actor Fawad Khan today said he believed that Afridi is a true Pakistani and comments were made just to ease up the atmosphere.
Talking to reporters during a promotion trip to the capital for his forthcoming film ‘Kapoor and Sons’, Fawad said,"Afridi was asked if he was worried about playing in India to which he said that he is not worried as he receives tremendous love here even more than he receives in his home town.

He said this just to ease up the atmosphere.
He's a proud Pakistani.’’ Fawad said he himself has seen how much love and affection Afridi received from his Indian fans.

’I have myself seen how much love and affection Afridi receives from his Indian fans when I was travelling with him once,’’ Fawad said.
Afridi had recently come under flak from his colleagues in the Pakistani cricket team for his comments.
