Pakistani ace cricketer Wasim Akram is one of the judges of the Indian reality show Nach Baliye. Though judging and commenting on the dancing capability of the contestants is not Wasim’s cup of team, he somehow managing to do so and depending maximum on his co-judge Bollywood actress and former miss universe Sushmita Sen. Sush is the main reason of his participation in the dance show. However, Wasim is totally clean bowled by Sush’s professionalism and judging ability. "I think she is an incredible person, very helpful, extremely professional and, yes, she has really made me comfortable on the show," said Akram in an interview.
Akram and Sushmita first interacted in 2006 in Dubai to raise fund for the Imran Khan's cancer hospital. As Wasim has zero knowledge of dancing, he agreed to be on the judging panel of this show only for Sushmita. "So far the game is really exciting and fun. It's something very different and that's why I agreed to the show and, plus, I was told that Sushmita would be there; so I agreed”, quips Wasim.
Unlike other cricketers, Wasim has no plans to take up acting in Bollywood and wanted to strict to cricket only. Wasim remarked that he is having a great time watching how his boys shake a leg on Bollywood’s hit numbers though he is naïve in this field.
Wasim has recited Shayeri on the show and very soon he is expected to groove with his favorite lady, Sushmita Sen.
