Sameer Shaukat, one of the members of Gaddani artists group, told that it was an exceptional feeling for his team. 

"We are very excited after Richarlison shared our art," he said. "We are the lovers of football and we made sand portraits of different players during the World Cup too," he shared. 

Shaukat wished to meet these football stars one day. "We want to meet them. A couple of international media outlets contacted me personally for sharing my art. I requested them to let us meet these players," he added. 

Earlier during the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Gaddani artists group's sand portrait of Virat Kohli went viral on social media. Pakistani pacer Shahnawaz Dahani showed that portrait to former Indian captain who then posed for a picture with it. 

Shaukat and his group of friends formed Gaddani artists group to highlight this beautiful area of Baluchistan through their art.
