Four More Shots Star Sayani Gupta speaks up on the importance of mental health, says 'It's important to cleanse our souls'

Sayani Gupta, who made waves with her role as Damini Rizvi Roy in Four More Shots Please, talks about the importance of maintaining mental health nowadays. Post the sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the focus on the mental health of the actors is being constantly stressed upon. To this, she tells a leading tabloid, "When it comes to actors, we exploit our emotions through, and for the work we do. We’re in the business of emotions. It might seem easy from the outside but actors are constantly exploiting and playing with their emotions in order to play characters and hit different emotional notes. The better one can mould his/her emotions, the better he/she is as an actor."

 
Adding further, the 34-year old actress says, "It’s important to cleanse our soul and insides almost like oiling the machinery. We don’t give it enough importance because it comes easily. But, a lot of self-work in retaining your sanity in the long run, requires you to start the work early on. This definitely means that we need to protect and preserve the well-being
 
of our mind just like we look after our physical well-being. Talking about the incident of Sushant, Sayani expresses her concern as a society. "This incident has come as a huge jolt and a huge heartbreak and as a community, we need to look out for one another and help and champion each other through our respective journeys, she concluded.
