Islamabad:  The success of 'Chak De India' has inspired producers in Pakistan to make a movie based on the life of flamboyant Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi.

The movie titled "Main Hun Shahid Afridi" is being produced by noted Pakistani producers Humayun Saeed and Shahzad Nasib and more than 50 per cent of the film has already been shot.

Movies based on sports have gained much popularity in the sub-continent after the success of "Chak De! India", the Dawn newspaper reported.

Previously a UK-based filmmaker Faisal Aman Khan, made a movie based on the life of cricketer turned politician Imran Khan.

"Main Hun Shahid Afridi" is a movie which entails the struggles and achievements of a simple boy who made it big in cricket through sheer determination and hard work.

According to Saeed, producer of the movie, more than 50 per cent of the movie has been completed. The movie has been shot at popular stadiums in Karachi and Sialkot through support from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

"Main Hun Shahid Afridi" is being directed by Osman Ali Raza and Saeed himself will star as a coach in the movie. Lead role is being played by a 19-year-old boy called Noman Habib, who himself is an aspiring cricketer. However, Afridi himself will not make any appearance in the movie.

Afridi, 32, has played 27 Tests, 334 One Day Internationals, 46 Twenty20 Internationals for the Pakistani national team and is also a former Captain.
