Faiz Qureshi, remembers with a heavy heart, the time he spoke to Sushant Singh Rajput, Faiz had talked to Sushant about the Reddwings Production 2019 Dubai Fashion and Talent show that was telecasted on Starplus UAE.
Faiz, speaking about his interaction with Sushant reminisced, “I had contacted Sushant to come to the show as a celebrity guest. Sushant was caught up in a hectic schedule at the time, I he didn’t want anything coming between him and his art as an actor, to avoid distractions he had stopped giving appearances in events, he wanted to dedicate all of himself to his work.”
Qureshi continued, “Sushant was a superstar, yet he talked to me like an old friend and he promised me that he will definitely come to any event I held next. We exchanged personal numbers afterwards, I felt so overjoyed and also came to a realisation; Sushant was a great actor but as a human being he was even finer. He was untouched by any pride or ego. I feel a great sense of loss over Sushant’s sudden untimely departure and sincerely hope and pray that his family finds strength and recovers from this cruel bereavement.”
Turning his attention to a bigger issue, Faiz Qureshi had a few words for newcomers, “I view this as an opportune time to spread awareness about the mental health of artists and models who are just starting out; and to all the struggling newcomers, I would like to say, that besides being an actor or a model, you also have to be a fighter and overcome all the tough situations you face, fighting bravely is the only way to go forward. Please do not give in to any negativity and do not even consider taking your own god gifted life as an option, please reach out for help, contact your family, friends, partner or a therapist. Suicide will never stop the pain, it will only pass the pain onto the ones you love. Everyone, please stay strong”
