When Babar Azam rejected a Pepsi commercial:
Talking about skipper Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan said he is a humble and innocent person. He narrated his story about opting to reject a Pepsi ad during Ramadan as he didn’t want to break his fast
“I will talk about something away from cricket – everyone knows about his cricket, and the whole world is crazy about his cover drives. But he has some amazing personal qualities too. He recently made a huge sacrifice when he was asked to do an ad for Pepsi. He was asked to make compromise. It was the month of Ramadan, but he would have to break his fast (for the ad). He said I can leave the ad, but I can’t break my fast.”
The flamboyant batter went on to add that if someone makes a sacrifice for the sake of his religion, Allah doesn’t let that go to waste. “It might seem like something small, but it was a massive offer that he turned down,” Rizwan concluded.
