This 2020 has widen the graveyards of the world. There have been consecutive deaths particularly I the Bollywood industry. The loss of Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor has already grieved the Hindi fil industry. Now added the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
The death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Sunday has induced a fresh discussion about mental health. The 34-year-old actor was found dead in his Mumbai home, in what police said appeared to be a case of suicide.
From being a small-town boy to entering the film industry and finally succeeding the industry, he was a great performer. Especially he was known most for his brilliant performances, in recreating MS Dhoni with an excruciating perfection on the silver screen.
While most of his films were found to be highly motivational but this incident made us regret over the films, we actually felt motivated. Many Bollywood actors and actress expresse3d their deep condescended for his loss. But Queen actress has not only severely criticised the media for their insensitive handling of the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, but she also blamed the Hindi film industry, which did not give Sushant any praise or rewards, amid his films doing really well at the box office. She posted the note “If celebrities are struggling with personal and mental health issues, the media should try and emphasize with them, rather than making it difficult for them”.
But Suicide is definitely not an option. Though this incident is still unsolved I wish people struggling with issues such as depression and anxiety to reconsider the point of surviving the world.
