Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s therapist Susan Walker has now opened up about the mental health of the actor. She decided to speak up because of the misinformation and conspiracy theories raging in the press and on social media around Sushant Singh Rajput and Rhea Chakraborty. In an interview with journalist Barkha Dutt, she said that the late actor was suffering from bipolar disorder and also said that Rhea was his biggest support.

Susan spoke about Sushant’s mental illness and also highlighted the stigma around mental health. “I met Sushant and Rhea on several occasions in November and December of 2019 and communicated again with Rhea in June this year. Sushant was suffering from bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that can be crippling for an individual during an episode. Symptoms  can include severe anxiety and major depression, sometimes disordered thinking and paranoia. The continuing appalling stigma around mental illness makes it very difficult for patients and their families to reach out for help and support. This has to stop. Mental illness is no different than cancer or diabetes. It can affect anyone regardless of class, financial standing and so on,” she said. 

She said that Rhea was Sushant’s strongest support and cared and loved for him. “Sushant was suffering terribly during his bouts of depression and hypomania. Rhea was his strongest support . The first time I met them as a couple, I was impressed by the degree of concern, support and love she showed and it was very evident how close they were. Rhea took care of his appointment and gave enough courage to attend despite being so fearful that someone might find out.When he was severely ill, he depended on her as somewhat of a mother figure and she completely filled that role with love, encouragement and patience,” she said.

 “It was an incredibly hard time for her as seeing someone suffer through the cruelty of mental illnesses of family members. They need to keep it a secret and bear things in silence, an added trauma. The treatment that Rhea has received on social media is deeply shocking to me as I have only ever experienced her as a deeply caring and sensitive person. Sushant’s sad and untimely death needs to be yet another lesson for us all–in ending of shame and stigma around mental illness,” she added. 

Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on June 14. He was found hanging in his apartment in Mumbai. The actor did not leave behind a note and the case is being investigated by the Mumbai and Bihar Police.

In a press conference, Mumbai Police made several clarifications on their findings related to Sushant’s death, his ex-manager Disha Salian’s death, and the issues that have cropped up with Bihar Police.

Mumbai Police said that the actor reportedly was disturbed seeing his name being mentioned in articles related to Disha Salian who jumped from the 13th floor, 5 days before the actor’s death. A case of accidental death was registered after her death.

The officials also said that along with the articles, he also searched for painless death, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The Mumbai Police Commissioner said at the press conference, “Sushant Singh Rajput was searching his name for around two hours.”

The Mumbai Police further said, “Bihar police has no jurisdiction to investigate this case, we are seeking legal opinion on that. We have not given clean chit to anyone, but the complainant [referring to KK Singh’s complaint] has not come to us.”

“We have no role in quarantining any officer, it’s the BMC that has acted on it,” they said.

Further speaking about Sushant’s family, Mumbai Police revealed, “Family in their signed statements on 16 June and has said that there was no suspicion on anyone.”

Earlier last week, Sushant’s father KK Singh filed an FIR against Sushant’s girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her family for abetment to suicide.

The film is written by National Award-winning screenwriter Himanshu Sharma, who also wrote films like Zero, Raanjhanaa and the Tanu Weds Manu franchise. The announcement comes on the day of the much-celebrated festival of Rakhi and the poster promises a family film with the celebration of sibling love in its purest form.

“Akshay loved the subject and agreed to come on board right after the first narration. It’s a light-hearted family comedy, that falls right in the Akshay Kumar zone of filmmaking too,” a source told Bollywood Hungama, adding further that it is written by the writer duo of Siddharth-Garima. The film will be produced by Aanand L Rai under his banner, however, we still await clarity on whether the filmmaker is directing it himself or does it mark the debut of Siddharth – Garima.

Looking forward to work with the filmmaker once again, Akshay Kumar said, “Hardly ever in life does one come across a story that touches your heart so deeply and so instantly! It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. And it will make us realize how blessed are those who have sisters. It makes me happiest that my sister Alka is presenting and producing this film along with ace director Aanand L Rai. Can’t thank him enough for bringing me one of the most special films of my life.”

The movie will go on floors by mid-2021. Written by Himanshu Sharma and produced by Colour Yellow Productions in association with Cape Of Good Films, the film is the second collaboration between Aanand and Akshay after Atrangi Re. Presented by Alka Hiranandani & Aanand L Rai, Raksha Bandhan releases in theatres on 5th November 2021.
