SpotboyE.com was the first one to get you the heart breaking news of TV actor Manmeet Grewal leaving the world for his heavenly abode. Later his close friend Manjit Singh shared the real reason behind his death to us explaining why the actor hung himself to a ceiling fan. It was revealed that financial crisis was so severe that the actor didn't know how to cope with it. All of the late actor's projects had come to a halt due to lockdown. And now many actors from the industry have come ahead to talk about the issue which many actors are going through.
Naagin 4 actress Nia Sharma who didn't know Manmeet personally also addressed the matter and request to the makers of various shows to pay the dues for artists and crew members to avoid such unfortunate and heartbreaking incidents. Sharing a post on her Instagram Nia wrote, "Not that I knew him, but the news about his suicide owing to his financial crisis is disturbing! (Needless to mention Migrants’ plight in the news everyday)" ALSO READ: Manmeet Grewal Suicide: Aadat Se Majboor Co-Star Sana Makbul Is Shocked With People's Apathy: 'His Wife Screamed For Help, No One Came’
"Now, was he the only one going through it? No! Every living being is. I know many of my friends(Actors) that haven’t been paid since last year or more with rents and EMIs mounting, work this year clearly being halted indefinitely, everyone’s losing patience somewhere. I know, Producers have bigger risks and problems to deal with .. no clarity on the industry resuming Work any soon ,but still keeping up with the salaries of their huge staff, I totally respect that! Infact would thank them for generating thousands of jobs for us through the years, I could make a better life here," she added.
Nia further wrote, "On that note, I’d just like to make a humble request on behalf of my fellow actors/ friends, other daily wagers that their dues be paid asap especially at a time when they need it the most so that we’re not waking up to more such Suicide Stories a few days or a month later!! I wish to be financially so strong one day that I myself could help people around. I rest my note."
Well indeed it's a great loss to his family and the industry at large. May his soul rest in peace.
