Shahid Afridi, the former captain of the Pakistani cricket team, is being brutally slammed on social media, all thanks to an old interview of his in which he passed bigoted remarks.
The star-cricketer admitted that he smashed a television set at his house, only because his daughter performed an aarti, after seeing the same on an Indian daily soap.
Here are more details.
Afridi said he broke TV because of his wife
In the clip, Afridi was asked if he ever broke a TV at home. A smiling Afridi replied that he is guilty but smashed the TV "due to his wife".
Apparently, he wanted his wife to watch Star Plus's serials alone, thinking they might be a negative influence on his kids.
And once, when he saw his daughter doing aarti, he lost his cool.
As Afridi displayed his bigotry, audience cheered
"Once I came out of the room and saw one of my kids copying an 'aarti' scene while watching a Star Plus show. I looked at her and then smashed the TV into the wall," the cricketer said, amid huge applauds from the audience.
