Karan Patel Lashes Out Over Sushant Singh Rajput Death

CELEBRITY NEWS: The tragic death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput has brought out emotions from many actors, directors and fans who took social media to pay tribute to the late actor. Filmmakers Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt took flack for their comments recently as they highlighted their concern for Rajput’s mental health but they never reached out to him.

And now television actor, Karan Patel, took to his Instagram account to vent his feelings about the fakeness of large social media audiences saying that even a star like Rajput who has millions of followers was truly alone. Patel also questioned the real motive of people behind the influx of messages stating that if anyone needed to talk, they were ready to listen.

“Was someone’s suicide needed for you to let others know that you are there for them? How come no one offers their shoulder to ppl suffering from depression until a victim of the same decides to end his/her life?”

“So stop this fucking pretence of wanting to be there for the world, your fucking drama is more painful than someone’s death. The fact is that 90% of you have invited people suffering from depression to approach you only because you simply wanted to be a part of the current trend.”

My question for everyone who suddenly, through their social media posts, find the need to let the world know that they are available to talk incase someone is facing depression. Was someone’s suicide needed for you to let others know that you are there for them ? How come no one offers their shoulder to ppl suffering from depression until a victim of the same decides to end his/her life ? Where the fuck are these so called supportive people on a normal day to day basis ? Why the fuck don’t you put up a similar ‘reaching out to’ post on a weekly basis so that people actually know that you genuinely want to be there for the depressed souls and not just follow the trend that happens whenever someone takes their own life. So stop this fucking pretence of wanting to be there for the world, your fucking drama is more painful than someones death. The fact is that 90% of you have invited people suffering from depression to approach you only because you simply wanted to be a part of the current trend. The biggest trigger of Depression is false hope, which most of you are actually giving to people who are genuinely suffering from it. So hence forth think ten time before you put up a fucking post committing to be there for people because when the time does arrive, when someone needs you and you fail to be there for them, then god forbid if there is a loss of another life, then that loss shall be on you. Commit only if you have the balls to go through with it.

He concluded by explaining why such posts were harmful by saying,

“The biggest trigger of Depression is false hope, which most of you are actually giving to people who are genuinely suffering from it. So henceforth think ten times before you put up a fucking post committing to be there for people because when the time does arrive, when someone needs you and you fail to be there for them, then god forbid if there is a loss of another life, then that loss shall be on you. Commit only if you have the balls to go through with it.”

Many agreed that this wave of support, even if genuine, was temporary and would get overshadowed by one’s own priorities in the future.
