Through his regular YouTube video talk show, former Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq paid tribute to two Indian "superstars" - Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor- who passed away earlier this week.

Mushtaq started the 'show' with a message, saying that death is the fact of life and the inevitable will come one day to everyone and each one will taste it.

Reliving his 'message of peace and harmony' with Rishi Kapoor on Twitter, Saqlain said that he wanted to meet the Indian actor and was ready to become his chauffeur.

Talking about Khan, Mushtaq said he has been living in England for the last 18 years and knows many friends who adore and respect the Indian actor.

Irrfan passed away on Wednesday morning while Rishi Kapoor died on Thursday. Both the actors had been battling cancer.

Watch the 'show' here:

Mushtaq, 43, had recently said that if India and Pakistan play, "there is a possibility of relations improving."

He recollected an experience that made him realise the power of sport.

"Sachin and Shane Warne had organised All-Stars matches in America (in 2015). You won't believe I saw a flag with colours of both India and Pakistan flags. An Indian and Pakistani were holding that together.

"It brought the two nations closer. I would request the ICC to look into this. Financially also, it is a win-win for both BCCI and PCB. The series is much bigger than the Ashes," he said.
