She further added, “He was a very creative person and would crack intelligent jokes. I don’t know what pushed him towards it and what went wrong with him. I just really wish he did not take this step. It is so disheartening and heartbreaking. He was a gem of a person and very talented. I did not know what was happening in his life. I just hope he rests in peace.”
Pooja Joshi aka Varsha from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was seen in its spin-off show, Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke with the late Samir Sharma. She played the role of his character Shaurya Maheshwari’s wife. Pooja said that she went numb after learning about his death. She recalls speaking to him just a few days before the actor’s death.
Geetanjali Tikekar had also worked with Samir in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon. According to reports, she couldn’t hold back her tears and spoke about the memories and the time she spent with her friend ‘Sam.’ The actress said, “Sam had this tendency of randomly being out of touch and we knew he would either be travelling or will be on any road trip. We didn’t really notice much.”
Well, it is a huge loss for Samir Sharma’s family and the industry. Our condolences are with them.
