He said, “At that time, seeing Sushant, I was thinking, if only you could see what has happened because of your departure, if you could see the condition of the people who loved you, you would never take this step.”

Speaking about overcoming the tough phases of life, Vivek Oberoi said, “I was fortunate to have a home, a family that supported me during that time. I used to sit on the floor and cry in my mother’s lap like a child. I used to wonder, why did this happen to me? One day I cried for 40 minutes, and my mother asked when you were winning awards, gaining fame, and love, did you ever ask why me then?”

The actor also suggested a way to deal with suicidal thoughts. He said, “Whenever you feel like ending your life, speed up your mind, think about what you will do with those who love you if you end your life. Do you want to hurt your loved ones? No, push yourself towards love and light.”
