Wasim's wife Shaniera is clearly not too pleased with the transformation!

The full promo of Geo Khelo Pakistan reveals that the duo will be joined by a bunch of other celebs, including Bushra Ansari and Noman Ijaz, on the show.

This may be one happening show and it's one that we'll keep an eye out for.
