LONDON – Aneel Musarrat, the London-based tycoon, and a close friend of Pakistan’s PM-in-waiting, Imran Khan, was captured alongside Bollywood star, Ashkay Kumar as the duo drove through a thoroughfare.
In a short video uploaded on social media, Akshay can be seen asking Aneel about his plan to return back to British capital city, London while he drove the open top Rolls Royce.
‘Would you be back after collecting the results of general elections,’ says the Padman star in Punjabi, implying that the video dates back to the pre-election era.
Though official details are yet to unfurl about the video, the social media reports suggest that the video was captured during the shoot of Indian flick Housefull4 for which Akshay is in London currently.
Aneel is a renowned businessman in the United Kingdom and has close links with the A-listers of Bollywood including Sonam Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, Hrithik Roshan and many others.
He also has his roots in Pakistan primarily due to his interest in the political landscape of the country and closeness with the cricketer-turned-politician.
Imran Khan had headed to London in September 2016 to attend the star-studded wedding ceremony of Aneel’s sister Saira where he also spoke to the guests, in his second speech delivered at any nuptial ceremony.
Moreover, he also attended the wedding ceremony of Aneel’s daughter last year, which is estimated to have cost around £4 million, featuring the top-notch performers of India.
Aneel Musarrat was also present in Banigala when Imran Khan made his victory speech after securing 116 seats in the July 25 General Elections that put him at the top slot of the country for the first time. Khan had also mentioned him during the speech made on the day, PTI launched its manifesto.
He had also attended the rallies of PTI in the years preceding 2018 and had frequently dashed to Pakistan along with Sahibzada Amir Jahangir who is the head of PTI UK & Europe chapter.
