Earlier I used to think acting was easy, but it s mighty difficult, he told BD You have to concentrate hard, even more than facing up to Shane Warne. I m delighted. I have played cricket for most of my life, but I wouldn t mind another shot at facing at the cameras.

The stage was set ever since Khaled Mashud made his theatre debut last Eid, and though Bashar s shoot was just for a day, the director has not ruled out another day of roleplaying. Action replay you said?
