If the coronavirus pandemic has was not enough, we have lost one artiste after another in 2020. In April, we dealt with the back-to-back demises of Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan. This was followed by the shocking demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor who was apparently suffering from clinical depression was found hanging in his Bandra residence. Veteran actor Jagdeep breathed his last two days back.
The bad news just does not seem to stop. It is a very hard time for all fans and lovers of Hindi movies. With some more months left for the year, we wonder how much more do we have to endure. We extend our condolences to the deceased’s family.
