Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has reacted to Bollywood star Sushant Singh Rajput’s shock demise.
Akhtar claimed that Sushant did not look too happy when he met him in Mumbai in 2016 and regrets not talking to him. Akhtar took to his Youtube channel to share his thoughts on the news that has rocked the Indian film industry in the last couple of weeks. The 34-year-old actor was found dead on June 14, 2020, at his house in Bandra.
“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,” said Akhtar in a YouTube video.
Akhtar added that he could have helped him by sharing his own experiences and given him a broad spectrum of life, which he believes could have helped him.
“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.
