Ronit Roy on actor’s commiting suicide, says, ‘four years I was sitting at home, I didn’t kill myself’
Ronit Roy opened up on actor's commiting suicide to his inital struggling days in the industry.
Ronit Roy is one of the most popular actors in the television industry. In 1992, he made his debut in the Bollywood industry with the film ‘Jaan Tere Naam’ which was a blockbuster at the box-office, but after that, he didn’t get a ‘single call’ and was jobless for four years.
Addressing the same, he told the Times Of India, “My first film was released in 1992 ‘Jaan Tere Naam’ which was a blockbuster. It was a silver jubilee and silver jubilee of that day means Rs 100 crore movie of today. My debut film was of that level. 1992 it released and for the next six months, I did not receive a single call. Then I got all kinds of trashy work which I did for three years and around 96 all the work dried up.”
Further, he said, “For four years I was sitting at home. I had a small car, but I had no money for petrol. I would walk up to my mother’s house for a meal as I did not have money even after being in a silver jubilee film. I did not kill myself. I am not passing judgment on anybody. Everyone at some point in their life faces a financial crisis. I feel if you are facing a financial crisis then killing yourself is not a solution. I don’t see any sense in taking your life because that can’t be a solution.”
The actor spoke in reference to the two TV actors Manmeet Grewal and Preksha Mehta took their lives due to unemployment and financial woes.
On the work front, the ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ actor is currently preparing up for the release of his upcoming web series ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain’ season 3 which will premiere on June 6 on ALTBalaji.
