Mumbai, Feb 18 : Pakistani actress Meera has lashed out against former pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar, accusing him of stalking and harassing her, reports Hindustan Times.
Saying that she had a year-long relationship with Shoaib that ended in 2010, Meera says he has been making her life hell with repeated phone calls.
"Shoaib nihayati badtameez hai. Jabse unko pata chala hai ki mere nikaah ki baat ho rahi hai, wo mujhe phone kar kar ke pareshan kar rahe hain. Unko sharam aani chaiye" (Shaoib is extremely ill-mannered. Ever since he came to know that talks were on for my wedding, he’s been calling and disturbing me. He should be ashamed of himself", said Meera over phone to HT reporter Minakshi Saini from Lahore.
The affair came into limelight last week when Pakistani media quoted Meera as saying : "Shoaib and I had an intimate affairs and he proposed to me. Sadly he also proposed to my cousin at the same time, which reflected that he wasn’t a balanced person".
Shoaib replies: "I never had any affair with Meera. The problem is that if a well-known cricketer even smiles at a girl, she thinks he is in love with her."
Meera acted in Mahesh Bhatt’s film Nazar in Bollywood and did a kissing scene in the film.
