It has been a year since Sushant Singh Rajput’s untimely and unfortunate demise. While it is being said that he died by suicide, there still continues to be a lot of mystery around his death, making way for multiple conspiracy theories around the same. However, something that has always been a topic of conversation is the reason behind SSR's depression, whether it was personal or professional.
It is also something that has ignited an increased conversation around mental health and his good friend, Rashami Desai, agrees that post the mishap last year, many have opened up about mental health and asked for help. She says, “Now people are talking openly about mental health and what it means. They are trying to create awareness about it. Moreover, since the last one year, there is a lot that has happened in the world (due to the pandemic) and in the entertainment industry — from uncertain future, to lack of jobs, no money, health issues, etc.”
While the actress is glad that people have understood the significance of communication, she also added that they have a long way to go where people need to understand issues around mental health and learn the importance of self-love.
