Rawalpindi Express is a biopic based on the life of great fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar. People have always loved Shoaib Akhtar for his fast pace, brutal bouncers, entertaining cricketing style and aggression on the field. He made people love every second of his play and he was able to get so many wins for Pakistan.
