Shoaib regrets not talking to Sushant despite meeting in Mumbai
Despite meeting Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar has expressed regret for not talking. Shoaib met Sushant at a hotel in Mumbai. He did not speak that day.
On June 14, Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput stunned everyone. Sushant’s body was found hanging from a fan at his home in Bandra, Mumbai. His death has also touched the people of the cricket ground.
Sushant became a favorite of cricket fans by playing the lead role in Indian captain MS Dhoni’s biopic ‘M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story’. Many cricketers are also acquainted with him.
Incidentally, Shoaib Akhtar may also know that Sushant has acted in Dhoni’s biopic. The day he found out, even though he saw Sushant, Shoaib did not call him. The regret of not speaking that day about four years ago is now in Shoaib.
Talking on his YouTube channel, Shoaib said,
“I met him in Olive in Mumbai when I was about to leave India in 2016. To be honest, he did not look very confident to me. He went past me with his head down when my friend told me he is doing MS Dhoni’s film.”
“I thought I will have to watch his acting now, He has come from a humble background and he is making a good film. The film did turn out to be successful but I regret not stopping him there and having a word with him about life. I could have shared experiences of my life with him, maybe I could have talked to him like the way I do which could have given him a broad spectrum in life. But I regret not talking to him,” he added.
It is believed that Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide due to extra frustration with life. Shoaib thinks that under no circumstances should a decision like suicide be made. This time he gives the example of another Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone.
“Ending your life should never be an option. Setbacks are an asset in life but when you know you have problems you should discuss it. Deepika Padukone reached out after her break up that she was suffering from anxiety and needed help. I think Sushant also needed help,” said Shoaib.
