SAB TV's Aadat Se Majboor actor Manmeet Grewal committed suicide on May 15. The actor was found dead at his apartment and the reason for his death is still not known and police is investigating the case. Manmeet’s family and friends are coming to terms with his drastic step. Reportedly, the actor was struggling with unemployment and debts. During a recent interview, Manmeet’s friend Manjit revealed that one of his close friends had also committed suicide just four days before he did.
Speaking to Times Of India Manjit said, “I got to know that his mother had called him four days ago to inform him that his friend in his village committed suicide by hanging himself. And that friend was also going through financial problems. Manmeet and he had been to a foreign trip and they had taken money on loan for it and he was unable to repay it. I don't know if that stayed in his mind and he was depressed about it. Manmeet was also under stress because of work as one of our web series which we were making had come to a standstill due to lockdown.”
“We had done casting for it. And then few of his Ad commercials which were in the pipeline got cancelled due to COVID-19 scare. So, he was facing financial problems and was depressed. In fact, they were planning to shift to Punjab as he had no work and he knew things were not going to get better anytime soon. Manmeet would tell his wife that he is not able to keep her happy and was feeling helpless that he was facing financial crunch,” he added.
When asked about he was disturbed he said, “I spoke to him at 5 PM in the evening, he seemed fine. He did not sound worried, in fact he would share all his worries and problems with me. We just made a movie also which is complete and I had taken money on loan for it, but he had nothing to do with that loan. The film is ready and we would discuss it. Obviously, he discussed worries like there was no work due to the lockdown, he had no money to pay the rent of his house. It was outstanding for the last two months and there was no money for daily expenses. He was a very happy-go-lucky person. He used to do stand-up comedy and make everyone laugh with his hilarious jokes. He kept everyone happy. He always tackled all the problems with a smile.” (ALSO READ: Manmeet Grewal Suicide: Friend Manjit Singh Says, 'No One Was Ready To Bring His Body Down, They Were Busy Making Videos'- EXCLUSIVE)
