While the issue of mental health and depression is very less vocalized, some of the Bollywood celebs have come forward to talk about it, from time to time. However; now, Punjabi actress Kavita Kaushik has come forward to talk about the need to talk about depression, after hearing about the death of TV actor Kushal Punjabi.

Going by the reports, Kushal Punjabi was found hanging at his Mumbai residence on December 26. The actor was taken to Bhabha Hospital, where he was declared brought dead by the doctors.

Kavita Kaushik, on the other hand shaken up by the news of Kushal’s demise took down to her Instagram handle to speak on the topic.

Kavita wrote: “Depression is not a CRIME.. we all are struggling with something or the other .. please talk .. please don’t pretend to be happy when you are breaking inside , fuck the bloody pressure of showing the world that EVERYTHING IS OK ! When it’s NOT !! , Kushal was a fighter .. he would be doing something new each time that we would connect , we were colleagues and not close friends but I know his family.. his parents and sister, they are simple and good people .. why did no one see this coming ? Cos mental health is a fuckin serious issue and people hide what’s really troubling them ,each one of us as at some point are bound to be in a dark space !! That’s life ! Now this wonderful guy is gone and all we can do is mull over “why” and “why couldn’t “ but the fact is that there is so much judging , so much “have to be relevant” , “maintaining the perfect image “ pressures we take on us and expect from others !! Stop generalising every damn thing .. pls be kind to each other , stay away from those who just gossip and bitch behind people’s backs and instead form a chain to protect and reach out .. Talk pls .. kushal is gone and we can’t get him back but we can be there for anyone who needs support .. I’m heartbroken but I’m there, anyone who wants to talk I’M HERE ?? you have created a dent in our hearts and gone Kushal ... can’t imagine the pain of your family and close ones ?”
