Owner of Peshawar Zalmi, Javed Afridi, has announced to hire Pakistani actress, Mahira Khan, as its brand ambassador for PSL 6 on Tuesday.
Afridi took to Twitter and informed the fans and followers of the latest development. “PLEASURE TO ANNOUNCE @TheMahiraKhan AS @PeshawarZalmi’s BRAND AMBASSADOR FOR PSL 6,” said Afridi in a tweet.
This is not the first stint of Mahira Khan with Peshawar Zalmi, she has worked with the franchise in one of the previous editions.

Back in 2018, the franchise had appointed Mahira Khan and Hamza Ali Abbasi as their brand ambassadors for the third edition of the Pakistan Super League where Mahira Khan had replaced Humaima Malick as the brand ambassador for Peshawar Zalmi.
Peshawar Zalmi rose as a strong team in the recent editions of the Pakistan Super League. It will be interesting to see if the team retains their title and once again displays a powerful performance in this season.
Peshawar Zalmi also hires Esra Bilgic?
Javed Afridi is up to some very interesting things for his team for this edition. Earlier last month, Afridi had announced to rope in Turkish actress Esra Bilgic for Peshawar Zalmi.
Both Afridi and Bilgic had hinted at an interesting project for Peshawar Zalmi. Bilgic took to Twitter as she informed fans to expect some good news regarding her partnership with Peshawar Zalmi in the coming days.
The deal had been in talks for the past year. Last year, Esra took to Twitter and said, “I will be sharing some good news with you soon”. She tagged the owner of Peshawar Zalmi, Javed Afridi, and the Twitter account of Peshawar Zalmi in her tweet.
In January 2021, Peshawar Zalmi owner, Javed Afridi, and Turkish actress Esra Bilgic have hinted at a new beginning on Wednesday by tweeting a cryptic message of a possible ‘new beginning’ on their official Twitter accounts.
The tweets triggered the interest of the fans and followers of Peshawar Zalmi and Bilgic in Pakistan. Perhaps, the words of Afridi were true when he hinted at hiring Bilgic as the brand ambassador of Peshawar Zalmi, a franchise of the Pakistan Super League. Bilgic had also announced last July that she would soon share the good news with Zalmi fans.
Last month, she had posted a picture of Islamia College Peshawar with the caption, City of Flowers, which pointed to her expected arrival in Pakistan soon. She posted the image on her Twitter and Instagram. Following her, Javed Afridi, the CEO of Haier Pakistan and owner of Peshawar Zalmi also shared her tweet on his Twitter account. In a separate post, Afridi also tweeted: City of Flowers.
Fans had anticipated that Afridi might hire Bilgic as the brand ambassador for Zalmi, however, people are looking forward to hearing the development regarding Bilgic’s stint with the franchise.
