While Arshi Khan has admitted that she met Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi a few times and even kissed him, she has flatly denied they have or have had any “affair” between them. However, a close friend of Shahdi Afridi from Karachi has confirmed to IndiaNewsNetwork.in that “indeed” the duo did spend a special weekend together in Dubai. The ‘friend’ who spoke to IndiaNewsNetwork.in on condition of anonymity said,”Yes they are having an affair. They not only have spent time in Dubai, but Arshi Khan has most probably also stayed with Shahid Afridi when he was in Mumbai and staying at the Taj Mahal Hotel at Colaba in South Mumbai. So Arshi Khan’s denial and clarification that they are ‘just good friends’ does not hold true.
When we confronted Arshi Khan regarding her alleged “fling” with Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi in Dubai, she admitted and said, “Yes Afridi is a very good friend. I have met him several times, but we are not having a relationship. We did not stay together as you claim. However, I may have kissed him socially during a party in a hotel in Dubai,” Arshi Khan had admitted.
According to media reports, top source in Dubai has revealed that Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi and model Arshi Khan spent a secret, passionate holiday in Dubai. They even stayed together for two days at a 7-star hotel, says our source. We have not been able to verify this information as Arshi Khan refused to speak to us on this matter and Shahid Afridi was not contactable. However, our source who was privy to the entire episode told us that model and actress Arshi Khan who is originally from Bhopal, but has now made Mumbai her home and Afridi may have a long distance relationship brewing between them, with the rendezvous location being Dubai. Arshi Khan regularly visits Dubai every 2-3 months and our source told us that she would visit Dubai to meet up with Afridi.
In another development, Arshi Khan confirmed to us that she had first met Shahid Afridi at the Taj Mahal hotel at Colaba in south Mumbai. They became friends and have kept in touch since then. However, she did not confirm or deny her meeting with him in Dubai. Speaking to us on phone she said, “I have lots of friends and relatives in Dubai and travel to Dubai very often. A lot of Pakistani cricketers are seen visiting, shopping and partying in Dubai and regular visitors to Dubai meet them often. This does not mean I am sleeping with Afridi,” she retorted. However, our source confirmed that Arshi Khan and Afridi had stayed together in a Dubai hotel for two days. “They are daily in touch with each other on phone and sms, and Afridi messages Arshi Khan at least few times every day,” the friend says.
‘Arshi Khan and Shahid Afridi are regularly in touch. In between, there were some family problems on Arshi Khan’s side but then they again started contacting and meeting each other,” our Karachi source said.
