Former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi spent a day at his future son-in-law Shaheen Afridi’s home. In 2021, Shaheen’s family approached Shahid for his second eldest daughter Aisha’s hand in marriage. Later on, the star cricketer confirmed that he received a marriage proposal for his daughter from Shaheen’s family and said that things will be finalized once his daughter completes her education.
