Sushant Searched ‘Painless Death’ Before Suicide

Sushant Singh Rajput Sushant had searched the term ‘painless death’ on the internet, this according The Quint. In an interview to Quint journalist, Barkha Dutt, Sushant Singh Rajput’s therapist Susan Walker has revealed the medical history of the late actor. Walker opened up on the late actor’s medical condition, adding that she has decided to breach doctor-patient confidentiality following the reckless media coverage around his death and the how social media trolls are unleashing hate on social media.

Dr Walker revealed that accused Rhea Chakraborty was a constant support for Sushant Singh Rajput and even “gave him courage to seek help”.

“Sushant was suffering from bipolar disorder. Symptoms can include severe anxiety. Mental health is no different to cancer or diabetes. The appalling stigma around mental health makes it difficult for patients”, Susan added.

Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput died by suicide on 14 June at his residence in Bandra. The Mumbai Police have been investigating every possible angle including professional rivalry and his reported clinical depression.

Sushant’s death sparked massive outrage on social media, with actors such as Kangana Ranaut claiming he was alienated, was a victim of nepotism and was forced to take the step because he succumbed to the pressures of the industry. The ‘insider-outsider’ debate is still raging on. Sushant’s mental health was also debated and dissected.
