Kavita Kaushik shared a picture of herself and Kusha Punjabi on her Instagram handle, and penned down a long note urging people to talk about mental health and depression. In her caption, she asked people to be open about depression and show it when they are not okay. She wrote, “Kushal was a fighter .. he would be doing something new each time that we would connect , we were colleagues and not close friends but I know his family.. his parents and sister, they are simple and good people .. why did no one see this coming ? Cos mental health is a f*ckin serious issue and people hide what’s really troubling them ,each one of us as at some point are bound to be in a dark space !! That’s life.” ALSO READ: Kushal Punjabi Death: Bakhtiyaar Irani Is Devastated, Recalls His Pleasant Memories With The Actor- EXCLUSIVE
