People often expect celebrities to have a thick skin just because they are in the limelight, and forget about the struggles they must face inward. Earlier this week, actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider opened up about his battle with depression in a distressing post on Facebook. The post garnered a lot of attention from fans and fellow celebrities alike, who showed tremendous support for the actor, and left words of encouragement and love for the actor.
However, not all actors hold the same kind of compassion and empathy for a fellow actor who is suffering from the worst of it all. Actor Shaan Shahid, popularly known as Shaan, also pitched in with his two cents in a Tweet, and is apparently taking an insensitive dig at Haider’s troubled state. He also reduced something as grave as depression to a “tool” which actors use to achieve the right kind of expressions. Talk about the height of insensitivity and lack of awareness.
