Actor Kushal Punjabi’s demise last year came in as a shock for the whole industry and was later found that he was dealing with depression. It was then following the same, actor and Kushal’s close friend Karanvir Bohra had revealed that he will be starting an organisation to help people dealing with depression.
In an exclusive chat with Koimoi, Karanvir opened up about the update on the organisation that he and friends have named Kushal Mangal and how they plan to take it ahead. The actor also got emotional while remembering his late friend and expressed how he misses him.
On the Live session when a fan asked if he misses his friend Kushal Punjabi, the actor said, “Of course, I miss Kushal. Right now also we were talking to Chetan (Chetan Hansraj) sometime back that look, what times we are in now. Kushal left because of depression and right now we are on such a stage. We are very fortunate that we have our family with us, but there are a lot of people who are just by themselves sitting at home and that could easily lead to depression and that is when I was thinking of Kushal you know. I don’t want anybody to feel like that, isolation can be a big enemy.”
Further, when asked about the organisation and how does he plan to take it ahead, Karanvir Bohra added, “We were just going to do it, it was about to start, it is called Khushal Mangal and this thing happened. We were really working on it and starting a kind of a seminar where we would invite people to talk on it and speak to them. We had got people on the panel, people from the industry, people who deal with mental stress, spiritually inclined people. So you mix everything together and help people who need guidance.”
For the unversed, Kushal Punjabi committed suicide last year in December. The actor had also left a note and it was said that he was suffering from depression.
