Ushna Shah is recently took to Twitter to share a fan moment with Shahid Afridi, testifying to the cricketer’s humility. Detailing her experience of sharing a flight with Afridi, Shah exclaimed that the cricketer had won over her heart with his kindness.

"On a flight with Shahid Afridi bhai. Hands down the biggest star in Pakistan yet so humble," said the Parizaad actress in a tweet.

"Blessed me with encouragement & duas & SO gracious & kind to everyone who would come up to him, especially children."

Ushna Shah concluded her tweet saying, "Lala ney dil jeet liya."
