Sushant suicide: Pakistani celebs talk about mental health

The death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput on Sunday has sparked fresh discussions about mental health.

The young actor was found dead in his Mumbai home, in what police said appeared to be a case of suicide.

The news was met with an outpouring of grief by fans and other Bollywood stars with the conversation soon turning to mental health and depression.

Now, several Indian and Pakistani celebrities are using their social media platforms to raise mental health awareness in light of Rajput’s demise.

Actor Mawra Hocane wrote: “It’s so important for all of us to be kind, to be compassionate, to be polite. We all have a role to play in each other’s lives. Let’s all have a big heart for one another. Let’s please be kind. Rest in peace, Sushant Singh Rajput.”

Model turned actor Amna Ilyas took to Twitter saying, “If a person has fame and money, it doesn’t mean he is the happiest of all! One in four people in the world are affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Please take care of the people around you. Sushant Sing Rajput, rest in peace.”

Mahira Khan said: “Why have we made it cool to be ‘straight up’? That isn’t honesty; it’s downright apathy! Be kind and proud. Wear it like a badge. Be kind. Be kind. Be kind. There is much more to people than they show. Be kind!”

Hamza Ali Abbasi also urged everyone to “Be kind to others, to your family, to the weak, to the poor.” He then asked people to be honest and ensure that others are safe from their actions and words. “Give charity. Know that the real life is about to start after the transition we call death. All peace comes from God,” he concluded.

Anoushey Ashraf also mourned Rajput with a public service message. “Something about depression killing a person is far worse than anything else. There is a lack of understanding on mental health issues and even though some think this is an easy way out, imagine the torment in one’s mind for them to take this step. RIP, Sushant,” she wrote.
