It has been a week since actor Kushal Punjabi committed suicide by hanging himself at his house in Mumbai. His death news came as a shock to the people in the acting industry. From Akshay Kumar to Ekta Kapoor, celebs from the film as well as TV industry were heartbroken to learn the news of his death.
The exact reason why the actor took such a drastic step isn’t out yet. However, reports claim that Kushal killed himself because of his unhappy marriage with Audrey Dolhen. Kushal’s funeral was held on Friday last week which was attended by his wife Audrey and 3-year-old son Kian and many TV celebs.
Many celebrities have spoken about Kushal and what a gem of a person he was. Now actress Dalljiet Kaur, who has been friends with Punjabi for 16 years also shared how the actor had helped her during her bad phase when her marriage with Shalin Bhanot ended.
Dalljiet Kaur told Spotboye, “I was so depressed. I was in a very low phase in my personal life, at that time. Kushal talked me out of it. He used to keep telling me how a broken relationship or marriage cannot be the reason to end a glorious thing called life. And now, he has done this. How could he? Did he realise about the scars that it will leave behind on his son, Kian?” The actress further shared that she regrets that Kushal’s son Kian will never find out how awesome his father was.
Kaur also said that her Santaan co-star Sonica called and told her about his suicide news. Dalljiet didn’t believe anything written on the internet initially but when many others said the same thing, her worst fears had come true.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar, who worked with Kushal in the film Andaaz said that he wants to make a film on depression and spread awareness.
