The former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar on Saturday announced that he would disassociate himself from his biopic project - Rawalpindi Express, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Taking to Twitter, he penned "Very sadly, I would like to inform all of you that after careful consideration of months, I have decided to dissociate myself from the film Rawalpindi Express & its makers by terminating the agreement through my management and legal team.” 

“Definitely, it was a dream project and I tried a lot to prevent and stay in the boat but unfortunately, things were not going well,” he said adding that “Failure to resolve disagreements amicably and constant contractual violations finally resulted in us cutting ties with them. Therefore, I have left the project after complying with all legal protocols of revoking the rights to the story of my life.” In the tweet, he also warned that severe legal action would be taken if the makers of the movie continue to use his name or life story. 

The biopic is being directed by Muhammad Faraz Qaiser, written by Qaiser Nawaz and produced under the banner of Q Films Productions.
