Actor Kushal Punjabi Dies At The Age Of 37, Reportedly Committed Suicide

RIP Kushal Punjabi: The actor reportedly committed suicide in his residence. This has left his friends, family and fans in shock.

Famous actor Kushal Punjabi, who has worked in films like 'Lakshya', 'Kaal', 'Salaam-e-Ishq' and 'Gol', died at the age of 37. According to sources, the actor reportedly committed suicide at his residence in Mumbai. Police have found a suicide note from the place but the reason behind taking this step is still unknown. However his close friend and actor Chetan Hansraj in an interview revealed that Kushal was depressed and he has committed suicide. He said, “Yes, it is a suicide. He was going through separation from his wife and he was also down with sickness. I still can’t believe that Kushal is no more with us. I spoke to him a couple of days ago and he discussed with me that he was disturbed. I tried telling him that things happen in life and he should just fight back. But I never imagined that he will take such a step. It is heartbreaking.”

One of his follower shared a screenshot of Kushal's Twitter bio where he changes his status minutes before committing suicide. Here is a screenshot of the tweet:

Kushal's death was informed by his friend and famous actor Karanvir Bohra who shared a post on Instagram with an emotional message on his friend's demise. Karanvir wrote, "Ur demise has shocked the hell out of me. I'm still in denial. I know you are in a happier place, but this is unfathomable. The way you lead your life really inspired me in more ways than one....but what was I to know. Your zest for dancing, fitness, off-road biking, fatherhood and above all that, that smiling face of yours, your happy-go-lucky nature your warmth all that was such ingenuity. I'm gonna miss you so much. You will always be remembered as a guy who lived a full life.”

Let us tell you that Kushal Punjabi last appeared in Colors' thriller drama Ishq Mein Marjawan. His co-star Arjun Bijlani also posted their picture from the sets with the caption: “I wish this news wasn’t true .but @itsme_kushalpunjabi has left us .will always remember our positive conversations about life, family and work. Rest in peace brother.”

His death has created a buzz amongst his fans. All of us are wondering what made him take such a drastic step. He was a fitness enthusiast. His social media handle is full of fitness-related posts that he used to share with his fans.

Onlymyhealth spoke to Dr. Komalpreet Kaur, Mind Designer at the Institute of Psychometric Assessment and Counseling (IPAC) to find out what compels a person to take such a drastic step. She said, “There are some people who are very unhappy inside but they try to show themselves very happy from outside. Nowadays people are also seen doing such activity on social media. There are people who suffer from depression somewhere, who do not express themselves. While they really need a support. ''

Just a few hours before committing suicide, the actor shared an Instagram story of his son with a heart emoticon.

This has raised many questions as if this step was taken in a spur of the moment or he was into depression? He was active on social media which shows no signs of depression. This makes the case even more confusing. The picture will get clear only after the official statement by the police.
