Actor Suman Dey expressed his shock over the incident in conversation with ETimes. He said, “It is shocking news and truly saddening. The time has come that we should prioritise mental health, and talk about the issues that affect us. I have seen a lot in my life and struggled in my career. So, whenever I see youngsters, I request them to be patient and not get carried away by anything. In case of any problem, we should share it with someone be it a best friend, sibling or parents. I always follow this in my life.”
