"he can give an Oscar-winning performance."
Reham Khan took a shot at her ex-husband Imran Khan by suggesting an “alternate career” for him.
Imran Khan was ousted as Pakistan’s Prime Minister following a vote of no confidence.
Shahbaz Sharif was subsequently elected as PM.
Khan’s removal from office saw some people extend their support for him.
But one person who did not feel sorry for him was his ex-wife Reham Khan.
Since divorcing him in 2015, Reham has frequently criticised her ex-husband, especially since becoming PM.
Now, she has mocked his removal by suggesting another career for him.
Speaking to a reporter, Reham joked that the former PM should try his hand at Bollywood.
She said: “He has become emotional.
“I feel India should make space for him, maybe Bollywood. I believe he can give an Oscar-winning performance.”
When asked if he would star as a hero or a villain, Reham said Khan has “comedic talent” and could be on The Kapil Sharma Show.
She continued: “That is up to him.
“In Bollywood, heroes become villains and villains become more popular.
“But I feel he also has comedic talent… If nothing else he can go for the vacancy on The Kapil Sharma Show. He can take Paaji’s (Navjot Sidhu’s) place.
“As we can see he is also into ‘shero-shairi’ (Urdu couplets) now.
“Also, he has a good rapport with Paaji so there can be some sharing with Paaji.”
Reham Khan further mocked Imran Khan when she replied to a tweet from a Pakistani journalist.
Journalist Hamza Azhar Salam had listed four “alternate careers” for Khan: Cricket commentator, personal trainer, TV or radio host, and Imam in Madrassah.
The journalist also wrote:
“I think Imran Khan could be a great wrestler where he fights the Americans who allegedly conspired against him in the ring.”
The jibe was in reference to Khan’s claims that the United States conspired against him in order to have him removed from office.

In response, Reham wrote: “Kapil Sharma sidekick.”
Reham’s mocking comments came to light a day after Imran Khan addressed a crowd in Peshawar.
He criticised the opposition and the judiciary, before indicating that he will do what it takes to become PM again.
He questioned: “I ask the judiciary that when you opened the court in the dead of night, this nation has known me for 45 years.
“Have I ever broken the law? When I played cricket, did anyone ever accuse me of match-fixing?
“I was not dangerous when I was part of the government, but I will be more dangerous now.”
