Shoaib Akhtar expresses guilt of not talking to Sushant when they first met

Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicidal death has left the entire world mourning over his loss. Being the wonderful soul that he was, a lot of celebrities have expressed their grief through several experiences. Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar too recently shared a video on his YouTube channel expressing his share of dismay over the loss of a phenomenal human being.

In his video Shoaib was quoted saying,
“I met him (Sushant) in Olive in Mumbai when I was about to leave India in 2016. A boy was approaching with long hair and his hat askew. I did not feel a lot of confidence when somebody told me he would be portraying the role of MS Dhoni in a biopic. 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.”

Shoaib further regretted the instance when he did not talk to Sushant,
“But one thing that bothered me was that I should have accosted him and shared my life experiences with him. This may have given him a broader spectrum in life. I regret not talking to him.”

Speaking about his own struggle in his profession, Shoaib added, “When I came into the side there was Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis who were like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh only… So I had to really put in the hard yards to make a name for myself.”

Shoaib also mentioned about how important it is to be in good mental health and to seek advice whenever required. Here’s what he said, “Setbacks are a part of life. When you are aware of your life’s problems, please share and discuss them with those close to you. Deepika Padukone had a problem, and she openly said that I have anxiety issues and I need help. Sushant also needed such help, and probably he was taking it also. But he should have shared his problems with his strong-minded friends.”
