I tried to commit suicide four times: Bigg Boss contestant opens up

Monday, November 23, 2020 • Hindi Comments

Actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Amit Sadh, who debuted in the Bollywood film 'Kai Po Che' alongside Sushant Singh Rajput, has revealed in an interview with MensXP that he attempted suicide four times while he was a teenager.

Explaining that he had no reason to take his own life, Amit Sadh reportedly mentioned that he just woke up one day and attempted suicide. "Between the age of 16 and 18, I tried committing suicide four times. I didn't have suicidal thoughts. I just went to commit suicide, there was no planning. I just woke up one day and tried and tried again and again and again. 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."

Talking about struggling with his mental health issues and overcoming the battle in the next few years, Amit Sadh added, "I didn't overcome it all in one day - took me 20 years! 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. Now I have a lot of compassion, love and empathy for people who become weak. I am in a happier place now and more stable emotionally. I've never lied or hidden. The whole country saw my journey in the reality show Bigg Boss. I was so frazzled and lost in it."
