Very few people know that Dalljiet Kaur was one of the closest friends of Kushal Punjabi who committed suicide on Dec 26. Dalljiet says that she has lost a very important person in her life. The Guddan actress sounded extremely low when we called her yesterday.
Dalljiet spoke about her association with Kushal, "I knew Kushal since 16 years- from the time we worked together in a show called Santaan. We shared a very strong bond." We asked her as to how did she come to know about Kushal's death. She said, "My Santaan co-star Sonica called me up and told me about it in the morning that the Internet is flooded with news of his suicide. I said I don’t believe what is written and I hung up on her. But my worst fears came true when I was told my many others that Kushal indeed is no more."
She revealed that it was unbelievable to digest that Kushal has ended his own life when it was he who helped her come out from her low phase when her marriage with Shaleen Bhanot ended. "I was so depressed. I was in a very low phase in my personal life, that time. Kushal talked me out of it. He used to keep telling me that how a broken relationship or marriage cannot be the reason to end a glorious thing called life.
And now, he has done this. How could he? Did he realise that the scars that it will leave behind on his son, Kian.” She said almost bursting into tears.
Dalljiet also revealed that it was very tough for her to believe the news that morning because just 6 days back, he had called and shared with her that he was participating in a Circuit Race in Mumbai. "A few days before that, he had also sent me a photograph of him holding a newspaper where the news had appeared that I'm returning to Guddan.
I regret that his son Kian will never know what an awesome dad his father was. The images when you're 3-years-old do not sustain when you grow up," she concluded.
