Amir Khan's fiancee struggled to understand his Bolton accentJan 23, 1:00 pm
London, Jan 23 (ANI): Amir Khan's fiancee Faryal Makhdoom has revealed that their relationship was almost on the ropes when they first met, as she could not understand a word he said.American student Makhdoom, who will exchange engagement rings with the boxing sensation on Jan 29, admitted that she struggled with his broad Bolton accent."In the beginning I really couldn't understand him," the Sun quoted her as saying."I was used to London accent s and thought that's how everyone spoke in Britain."But when Amir opened his mouth it was completely different. "It was like he was speaking in a foreign tongue - so I just used to nod, agree with whatever he was talking about and say, 'Yeah'."He'd say things like 'daft' and 'innit' and I had no idea what they meant. "He'd say, 'Don't be daft!' - and I'd be wondering what 'daft' was supposed to be!"She broke down the language barrier when she visited Amir's family at their home in Bolton and spent five days meeting his nieces, nephews and cousins."Everything is fine with us now - my ear is tuned in. "I enjoyed my time in Bolton but it was so different to New York, especially the streets - they looked so little," she added. (ANI)
