In a video gone viral, Shoaib Akhtar is shown to have put on a lot of makeup, including a dark shade of lipstick and eye shadow as he began answering why he is so energetic at a backstage interview of Geo TV show. He looks so funny in this video that he has become an Internet sensation overnight! While Internet users trolled him for applying so much makeup, this also brings to the fore the pressure social media and television personalities face to look good.
If one would recall, popular cricket anchor Mayanti Langer, who was associated with the now concluded ICC Champions Trophy 2017, was in news for her never-failing attempts to look gorgeous and appealing on screen. This time, it is none other than Shoaib Akhtar who couldn’t resist the temptation to look appealing on the screen.
Shoaib Akhtar, also known as the Rawalpindi Express due to his outstanding bowling speed, during his heydeys on the cricket field, is now a popular social media personality. From being a judge on a comedy show, releasing his autobiography, Controversially Yours and often uploading videos on his Facebook and Twitter page, the former cricketer has been in the news for quite a while. But this time, he is in the limelight for a completely different reason.
Popular TV and social media personalities are pressurised to look good and presentable while they interact with people all over the world. Common people also put on makeup, wear fancy clothes and upload pictures and videos of themselves and get many likes and comments. But the pressure is comparatively greater on the famous people.
So ladies, watch out for this “Beautiful” and “Dazzling” hunk as he tries to blow our minds away with his “Makeup” skills. Who knows, he might even surpass all the gorgeous beauty queens out there!!
