Another actor kills himself. I hope our TV News media will have as much concern about him. I want to see.
Meanwhile sane people,
we need to watch out for our friends. Make that extra call just to say Hi. Time to hold hands.

Rajput's death led to a widespread debate about the nepotistic culture of the industry and even sparked several conspiracy theories.
