Citing depression to be the reason behind Ishq Mein Marjawan star Kushal Punjabi‘s suicide, the television industry woke up to actor Karanvir Bora’s social media update where he paid his condolences to the 37-year-old actor with heartbreaking throwback pictures. While some expressed their inability at not reading the sadness behind his ever smiling face, others were left in denial as they are yet to come to terms with the tragedy.
Taking to his Instagram handle, Veer Arya shared a picture with Kushal where the duo is seen sitting with their boys’ gang and sharing a hearty laugh. The picture was captioned, “Laughing and sharing joy is half our relationship. Crying and sharing pain is the other half. We often fail to understand the dept of pain one is in and also, often fail to share ours ! 🙁 Lets learn to do so. Help each other. We all need it. Rest in peace my handsome brother wherever this onward journey of yours is taking you to, But knowing you; I am sure you wouldnt be resting but dancing your way forward ! #RIPKUSHALPUNJABI (sic).”
