The Indian all-rounder will enter Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8 as the season’s first wild card entry and has declared that he will dance on the show for a cause
“My brother Yusuf and I jointly run an institute called Cricket Academy Of Pathans.
"It is our dream project and we want to see it grow,” Irfan told agencies, adding that all the money that he makes dancing on the show would go towards the betterment of his training institute.
Cricket Academy Of Pathans is a self-funded effort launched by Irfan and Yusuf Pathan in September 2014 for underprivileged children, who show a flair for the game.
The academy has tied up with Australian cricket legend and ex-India coach Greg Chappell as one of its chief mentors.
