Mohsin Abbas urges people to open up about depression
Known for his impeccable acting skills and an impressive persona, the immensely talented, Mohsin Abbas Haider has been winning innumerable hearts throughout his career. Talk about playing Feeka in Lashkara or the ferocious villain in Meri Guriya, Mohsin is unarguably the perfect epitome of versatility. But the treasure of the talent he has does not end on merely acting, the actor is an owner of the majestic voice and has intoned many surreal songs, including ‘Uddi Ja’ from Coke Studio.
The ‘Meraas’ lead actor has recently taken to Instagram and Facebook to tell all his fans and friends that he is suffering from depression. He writes, “Depression is all set to kill me soon. I just wanted to say thanks to the people who caused it.” As soon as the actor posted it, ample fans and friends including, Ayesha Omar, Anoushey Ashraf, Osman Khalid Butt, Ali Gul Pir, Natasha Baig, amongst others have exhibited outstanding outpour of concern, love, and prayers.
However, the Muqabil sensation deleted the post after a couple of hours, only to put up a video delineating his strong message regarding depression. He captioned the video with “Love you All #LoveAndPeaceIsAllWeNeed… P.S. get rid of all those Toxic People in your life.” He started off the video by thanking all his fellow celebrities and fans for their “love, support and concern.” He further reaffirmed that everybody endures depression in a way or another. He continued, “Sometimes we talk about it and I personally felt better after opening up.” He said that he is not that kind of a guy who would reveal his personal life in front of anyone but there comes a moment when you feel it is the “end point.”
