Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on June 14 left the entire country in a state of shock. The 34-year-old actor was found hanging by the ceiling fan when his domestic help broke into his bedroom on the afternoon of last Sunday, say reports. The actor was reportedly suffering from clinical depression and had stopped taking his medication for some time. Actress Deepika Padukone who has come out and spoken about her battle with depression in the past, and how she overcame it, has been urging people suffering from mental health problems to seek timely help, and most importantly, share their concerns with near and dear ones.
The actress who also runs an NGO, The Live Love Laugh Foundation, has expressed her displeasure at the way the paparazzi have covered Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. A Bollywood paparazzo had put out a video of Sushant’s mortal remains being carried from the hospital to the crematorium. Disturbed by the video, Deepika left a comment on the post. “Please note my images and videos cannot be posted on any platforms without my written consent,” read the caption on the paparazzi video.

Replying to it, Deepika wrote, “Right. But it is OK for you to take this video and not only post it but also probably monetise it without his or his family’s written consent?”
Fans sprung to Deepika’s support, hailing the actress for her comment. “Agree with you,” read some fan comments, in reply to Deepika’s statement.
Deepika Padukone has never shied away from talking about topics that are close to her heart. A rare crusader, Deepika Padukone set a shining example when she showed up at the JNU in Delhi, to show solidarity with the students, amid raging tension and violence, right before the release of her ambitious film, Chhapaak, not fearing the consequences her move might have on the film’s box-office play.
