Preksha Mehta who was seen in Akshay Kumar’s PadMan attempted suicide a couple of days ago at her house hanging from a ceiling fan. There was no clarity about the reason but her father has clarified what was it. He has revealed it was indeed the pressure of the lockdown that manipulated her mind and forced her to sacrifice her life.
Preksha Mehta’s father pours his heart out regarding the problems his daughter was facing before she died. Lockdown has resulted in many people losing their jobs and that’s been affecting them mentally. Preksha was never pressurised for anything, she also was supported to do what she wanted to.
In a conversation with ABP News, Preksha’s father revealed, “Preksha used to remain restless as all shoots had halted due to lockdown. She was upset over the further extension of the lockdown in Mumbai. She never liked sitting idle. Whenever she used to read about the lockdown in the newspaper, I used to tell her that shouldn’t be worried as it’s for everyone. We had no idea she will take such a drastic step.”
Preksha Mehta’s father also added, “Preksha had already told us that she will get married in 2-3 years only after earning a name in the film and TV industry. We never pressurized her for marriage but sometimes we used to ask her to get married in a light-hearted manner.”
He then reacted to her suicide note saying, “After reading the note, even we couldn’t understand why she wrote all this.”
Her note read, “Mere toote huye sapno ne mere confidence ka dam tod diya hai, main mare huye sapnon ke saath nahi jee sakti. Iss negativity ke saath rehna mushkil hai. Pichle ek saal se maine bohot koshish ki. Ab mein thak gayi hoon (My shattered dreams have broken my confidence, I can’t live with dead dreams. It is difficult to live in this negativity. I have been trying since past one year. I am tired now).”
Hours before she committed suicide, she took to her Insta and wrote, “Sabse bura hota hai, sapnon ka mar Jaana (The death of the dreams is the worst).”
