Shekhar Suman is making headlines the past one week regarding the news about Sushant Singh Rajput's untimely death. In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror Shekhar Suman revealed that his son Adhyayan also suffered from depression before. Suman also said that Sushant Singh Rajput was also like his son and he can understand the pain his parents must feel.
Shekhar Suman said that he was surprised when he first found out that his son is suffering from suicide. Suman added saying, "Sushant was like a son to me. I can understand his father’s pain. This is because just like him, my son Adhyayan too has suffered depression and has gone through a similar phase. The film industry created several hurdles for him. Once, he even told me that he was having suicidal thoughts."
"It was difficult for us to get my son out of that bad phase of his life. But now, after Sushant’s death, I am scared and worried once again. I used to peek in his room just to check that he was okay. It has happened several times that I had opened his door to check on him at 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning, only to find him staring blankly at the ceiling. I used to ask him to sleep and that we all are there to stand by him,” he added.
Shekhar Suman previously said that he does not think Sushant Singh Rajput died due to depression. Suman also urged the government to ask the CBI to probe into the actor's death.
