Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic suicide is still under discussion. When a person who has everything in life, ends it for themselves, it leaves many questions unanswered. There have been countless stories related to Sushant Singh Rajput, but Pakistan’s ex-cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has a different angle to what happened.

A couple of weeks back, famous Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput hung himself inside his house. Since then, the Indian police have been trying to solve the case. Confirming that Sushant committed suicide and it was no murder, people have been trying to find why he did so.

From the blame on his haunted house, his manager’s suicide, to nepotism in Bollywood, everything might have added to it. His girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty’s fight with the actor is also being considered a reason. However, the Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar recalled an incident from 2016 when he met Sushant Singh Rajput in Mumbai.

“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.
He added: “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. 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.”
Ever since the news of Sushant’s suicide broke, people have been wishing they had done something to stop him. Shoaib Akhtar feels the same way. Akhtar thinks had he talked to Sushant and praised him for his work, things might have been different.
However, the fact remains that when mental health issues strike hard, there is not much a person can do. It doesn’t matter if they’re rich or poor, some things are inevitable. Only recently, Sushant’s final post-mortem confirmed the cause of his death.
