Shekhar Suman Reveals His Son's Battle With Depression

Several personalities from within the Bollywood industry are opening up after the sudden demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. It is said that Sushant was suffering from clinical depression. Some have a theory that he was forced into depression while some believe it to be a murder. Actor Shekhar Sumar has come out to share that his son Adhyayan too has suicidal thoughts. He said, “Sushant was like a son to me. I can understand his father’s pain. This is because just like him, my son Adhyayan too has suffered depression and has gone through a similar phase. The film industry created several hurdles for him. Once, he even told me that he was having suicidal thoughts.” He further told, “It was difficult for us to get my son out of that bad phase of his life. But now, after Sushant’s death, I am scared and worried once again,” he said. “I used to peek in his room just to check that he was okay. It has happened several times that I had opened his door to check on him at 4 or 5 o’clock in the morning, only to find him staring blankly at the ceiling. I used to ask him to sleep and that we all are there to stand by him.” Shekhar now thinks that Sushant’s death may be triggering for his son and therefore he never leaves him alone.
