Rohan Shrestha opens up about photographing Lionel Messi
Rohan Shrestha, who recently made headlines for his rumoured relationship with actress Shraddha Kapoor, took to Instagram to share photos of Messi he took about a month and a half ago. “When people play the hypothetical game of “Who’s the one person you’d do anything to photograph?” he wrote, remembering the surreal experience. Messi, who has been a Barcelona fan since 1999, is more than just a footballer, the GOAT, and the world champion. He’s our la masia boy, the one who has given me an endless supply of happy memories since his debut in 2004/05. (sic)”
He further wrote, “Prior to photographing my hero I was nervous as hell, what do I wear? Should I tell him I’m obsesssed with him? I’m a barca fan? No? Okay let’s do what you normally do- let’s try to _act_ professional. “Don’t deviate Rohan” I told myself “be the photographer and not the fan”.. .At the start of this shoot my hands were actually shaking and I was like, “fuck okay this is what it’s like to be very very nervous”. I was a ball of anxiety prior and had to call up my friends to calm me down. The shoot was so smooth and eventually Messi was told by his team that I was a MASSIVE fan and at the end of the shoot he came over and hugged me. Post shoot ngl many tears were shed. Thank you to @homyarpatel my assistant who held me together when I was feeling nervous. (sic)”

He concluded, “These images were shot a month and a half ago and my friends asked me why I wasn’t putting them up? “I’ll wait for him to win the World Cup”. A few days ago I was fortunate enough to be in the stadium watching Leo lift that trophy. It was written in the stars and sometimes we just have to be grateful for what life gives us. (sic)”
