I am playing an interesting character who is suicide planner who helps people to commit suicide”.
Talking about depression as serious issue in India, she said, “Depression is serious issue in our country. I feel it is good thing that films based on this topic are being made so people can openly talk about this issue openly because our society is still not very open when it comes to the discussion of depression and mental health as still, people feel shy about it. This film gives positive message at the end of it.
Talking about Blue Whale game Jay said, suicide has become a major problem in our country. I heard from my friend about Blue Whale game in which they excite children and gives challenges to the kids to cut their veins. It is a 50 day game and that is depressing.[ecp code=”4″]
Swara also talked about Blue Whale game which is making headlines these days in which recently two young kids from Mumbai and West Bengal respectively committed suicide to complete the death defying task. she said, “I am shocked to hear that. Firstly, I didn’t knew about this game. I don’t understand how this game is being available to children because this government (NDA) is known for regulating content. Last year they banned porn websites so I feel if you are doing that then you can definitely look after this serious issue because it’s a security hazard for children apart from being ethically wrong”.
