Sushant Singh Rajput’s shocking suicide raises the dire need to prevent such disturbing incidents. Vivek Oberoi, Dr Anjali Chhabria and Dr Harish Shetty reflect on the pressures of stardom on mental health.
It is tragic that suicides have become even more common in society after the coronavirus pandemic. Various reasons are leading people to take horrifying decisions of quitting life. I spoke to actor Vivek Oberoi and two leading psychiatrists, Dr Harish Shetty and Dr Anjali Chhabria, on the pressures of stardom and the importance of mental health.
It’s been a terrible day, but this is an important conversation that we all need to have.
Losing Sushant Singh Rajput has been a personal loss to me.Whenever we met, he spoke his heart out. I remembering meeting him first when Kai Po Che was about to hit theatres and he had visited my former workplace Mumbai Mirror. Our next meeting was when Raabta was round the corner. And then, I met him with the Chhichhore gang.
Gone too soon, SSR. What an absolute tragedy.
