In a video message posted on Twitter, Sharjeel Khan said: “I am receiving threat calls for the last few days. These guys are demanding money and have threatened to upload my fake videos on the social media. I thought I should bring this into your knowledge that all such videos are fake. There is no such thing. They are just trying to malign my name.”
Commenting on the matter, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesperson stated that anti-corruption unit has been directed to probe the matter.
