In yet another shock to the Indian television industry, popular actors and siblings
Sreedhar and Jaya Kalyani were found dead at their apartment. Financial crunches due to lack of work are reported to be the reason for their suicide. This comes a day after popular Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise jolted the nation.
The actors were found by the Chennai police in their apartment after neighbors complained of a foul smell. Their bodies have been sent to Stanley Hospital for post-mortem. The increasing cases of coronavirus have resulted in complete lockdown all over the country. Normalcy as we knew it has come to a total standstill. Sreedhar and Jaya were reportedly depressed due to lack of work and increasing monetary strain in the family.
Last month’s reports of Indian television actor Manmeet Grewal and Preksha Mehta’s suicide had also shocked the industry. Both the actors were under depression due to the rising financial crunches. Actors from Bollywood and South Industry came out to speak about the issue and urged production houses to clear dues and pay minimum wages even as work is being put off.
On Sunday, popular Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput ended his life at his Bandra apartment in Mumbai. The 34-year-old actor had been battling clinical depression for a long time. His death woke up the country to speak up on the importance of mental health and the need to be kind to one another. Actors have since been posting various helpline numbers for people in distress, urging them to seek help or talk to loved ones.
In these trying times, one must lend their support to people in need. Mental health is real and its high time we make it available and prioritize it for every person in the country.
