Suicide is no solution to end stress : Akshay addressing student suicide

Thursday, May 04, 2017

Actor Akshay Kumar has shared a video message with students going through exam stress where he has advised them against bottling up their emotions.

The 49-year-old actor, who will receive the National Award for best actor for his performance in 'Rustom' today, took to Twitter to share an anecdote from his childhood in a five-minute-long clip.

Akshay said he owes the prestigious award to his parents and remembered how supportive they were when he scored poorly in his exams.

"My father sat me down and calmly asked me what I wanted to do. I told him I was interested in sports. As time passed, I got into martial arts after sports, which was followed by modeling and acting. I feel if that day my parents had not supported me, winning the National Award would seem like a distant dream," he said.

Akshay also urged the parents to take more interest in their child's lives and treat mental illness like any other medical issue.

He implored the youth 'not to take life lightly' and understand its value.

"Don't bottle up your emotions. Share them with your near and dear ones. Suicide is no solution to end stress," Akshay added.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You may find it difficult to concentrate on work the spontaneity you seek is missing from your life. You seem to lack interest in anything.. There is a tendency for you to read meanings into what people say to you. Stop being on the defensive and hypersensitive unnecessarily. There are problems in a relationship. Accept the changing situation and flow with the tide and you will find it a lot easier to get by.
