Manmeet Grewal’s close friend Manjit Singh urges everyone to help the deceased actor’s family
Television actor Manmeet Grewal committed suicide as he was depressed since his income was badly affected by the lockdown. Rising financial woes made the ‘Aadat Se Majboor‘ actor take such a drastic step.
Ever since the news of his death surfaced, several television actors came out and offered condolences to his family. Actors like Nia Sharma and Lakshya Lalwani even highlighted the plight of television actors who are paid on per day basis. Now Manmeet’s close friend Manjit Singh has urged the fraternity to come forward and help the deceased actor’s family in this time of crisis.
Manmeet’s close friend Manjit Singh opening about his family’s plight told SpotboyE, “Actors like us come from a non-filmy background as we too have dreams in our eyes. Even though our three days work payment is done after three months, but we still keep it going with the same dedication. Sometimes our earning makes just for a month’s house rent but we don’t give up. But now I feel we should also be taken care of. I just want to request the association who issues our cards, saying that we belong to them, that whenever such unfortunate incidents happen with any of their members, they should come and meet his family and ask if they need some help.”

On May 16, when Manmeet had hanged himself in his Navi Mumbai flat his neighbours didn’t come forward to help his wife fearing Coronavirus infection. Confirming the same, Manjit told the portal, “The time is so bad that due to Covid-19, no one even came to take his body. People made calls to me from the industry but not a single person came ahead to help us.”
32-year-old Manmeet is survived by his wife and parents. We hope the concerned authorities will come forward and help Manmeet’s family in these tough times.
