Why Mental Health Of Actors From a Non-Filmy Background is Still a Taboo

The sad demise of Kai Po Che actor Sushant Singh Rajput sent shockwaves to the entire world. God alone knows the real reason behind such a drastic and brave step taken by Sushant to depart from the world into eternal peace.

Now, Rajput being from a non-filmy background created a lot of stir in the film industry. As everyone is well acquainted with the knowledge of Bollywood star kids and nepotism, a synonym connected to a certain privilege, most succumb to success easily deny. 

The actor was often bullied and trolled by the Bollywood’s most successful and popular bandwagon including well-established directors and mainly actress student Of The Year starlet Alia Bhatt for nearly belittling and falling short of all empathy for the actor.

It seemed as if the needles were straight targeted towards Sushant because of his background. 

However, the recent developments suggest that the actor was undergoing a mental health treatment for the past 6-months which the industry was unaware. An hour before he passed away, two recent calls made to his rumoured girlfriend Rhea went unanswered. 

Director Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt were called out for bullying the actor and is being touted as the main cause for his recent developments of feeling indifferent. In one of the eps of Coffee With Karan, Alia made a rude reference to Sushant, saying ”Who Sushant”, answering to one of the rapid-fire rounds. 

While so much has happened. It was Kangana Ranaut who spoke the reality of filmy world plastered by invisible crudeness. May Sushant rest in peace and let us all pray for his soul to be in a better place.
