The death of Sushant Singh Rajput due to a tragic case of depression has sparked a row of discussions about mental health. Now director Kushan Nandy has opened up about his own path to recovery and normalcy from the time he was having suicidal thoughts. The director is famous for his 2017 action/crime film called Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. However Nandy confessed that the industry is ruthless and drives people into taking drastic steps such as suicide.
Kushan Nandy took to Twitter to share his own experience of suffering with a mental illness. He wrote saying, "I would be lying if I say I have never thought of killing myself. It's happened many a times... Just never had the courage to do so. Also, the thought of leaving some people behind, is scary. But yes, I have come pretty close."
"Tried consulting doctors... Medication makes you groggy. Took it for a few days, then stopped... Tried meditation, yoga.. they help. But I understand that there are many like me. It's just a thin line between being able to pull the plug or not," he added.
Kushan Nandy also emphasized that no matter what the situation we all have the strength to recover from it. Nandy added saying, "Have been feeling better for the past few months. What has helped me is finding positivity in things. Fake it, till you feel it's real...Stop associating with everything and everyone that pull you down, or scoff at you... whether it's people, family, friends, on social network.. Hopefully you will find people who love you for who you are. You will find people who care. I did..They might/might not come from close quarters. But you will find them close. Look for them. You might be lucky. Also do something that makes you happy..work, hobby, maybe a sport."
