Karachi, August 16 (ANI): 'Main Hoon Shahid Afridi' producer Humayun Saeed has said that he respects Shahid Afridi's sentiments, after the Pakistani cricketer objected to an 'obscene' scene in he film and asked to edit it out from the final print.
The cricketer said that he did not want to be seen endorsing content he considers 'obscene' as it would affect his image and misguide his fans.
The 33-year-old all-rounder said that he has a problem with the item number featured in the film, as that is something which is going to make the families sitting in the cinema halls uncomfortable.
However, Saeed apparently told Afridi that the item number is his attempt to show how clubs and parties in foreign countries are an imminent part of cricketing culture and also safe houses for corruption and black mailing in the cricketing world, The Tribune reported.
Afridi said that Saaed had worked hard on this film and the reasons that he gave for the party sequence might be right but Afridi was sure that there are better and more socially acceptable ways of achieving it.
The Pakistani sportsperson said that he spoke to Saeed like brothers so there is no point of making a legal issue out of this and the most that he could do was to request him to edit the song and the rest was up to him.
Saaed said that he completely respected Afridi's sentiments and if the cricketer remained adamant over his concerns then they are going to fulfill his needs. (ANI)
