Several Indian actors have ended their lives by suicide in recent times. In 2020, actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s body was found hanging in his Mumbai apartment. The same year, TV actor Samir Sharma had committed suicide after he wrote about mental illness and depression in the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
