Amit was quoted as saying, “Then by God’s grace, the fourth time, the last time I did, I knew that this is not the way and this is not the end. And things changed. My mindset changed. And since then, it has evolved and the philosophy of ‘never giving up’ came in me.”

The actor added that it took him 20 years to come out of that phase and to understand that no problem is big enough to force you to take your own life. “I just found one thing for sure – this is not the end. Life is a gift. So, the day I understood this, I started living it. I feel blessed and fortunate that I’m on the other side of the white light,” he said.

With the pandemic hitting the country, there has been an increase in the number of suicides, especially by youngsters.

Meanwhile, at the work front, Amit was recently seen in the second season of the popular series Breathe: Into The Shadows that streams on Amazon Prime Video and also features Abhishek Bachchan.
