Remember Manav Deshmukh which became a household name from 2009 soap opera Pavitra Rishta. The role was played by Sushant Singh Rajput. It was through this TV series that Sushant Singh Rajput shot to fame. However, the talented actor committed suicide last month on 14th June 2020.
Producer Ekta Kapoor from Balaji is once again launching the TV series to fund for mental health issues awareness.
Ekta Kapoor said, “The times have drastically shifted from what it was 10 years ago, as there is a lot more pressure today. With the pandemic around, especially with all of us being confined to our homes, people are facing a lot more stress and anxiety. Stress levels due to work, friction at home, loss of jobs etc, have contributed to the ongoing issues of deteriorating mental health conditions in many. It is my privilege to be a part of the Pavitra Rishta Fund, and I will always be happy to be a part of such initiatives in the future as well.”
The very idea to re-launch the series is to spread knowledge and awareness of mental health problem and to support individuals to cope up with the issue.
Mental health is a huge problem and there is a lot of taboo surrounding it. Many people bottle up their problems which result in terrible consequences. Anyone irrespective of social and financial status can suffer from depression. Hence the initiative is to help people in these tough times.
