His friend mentioned the actor being a fun-loving guy, but at times he could just disconnect with people. Also the past few months for the actor were quite stressful. “He was suffering from a mood disorder and had been visiting a psychiatrist.

The past few months may have been stressful for him,” he said.  

Also when asked about if the actor was hit by financial crisis he added, “He hadn’t resumed shooting post the lockdown, so yes, he may have been going through some financial issues.”
