A video of late actor Inder Kumar in which he is speaking about ending his life due to depression is doing the rounds of social media. The video is actually part of the unedited footage from his last film Phati Padi Hai Yaar. Kumar, a known face of the 1990s, died last year due to heart attack at the age of 43.
Jatin Dharna, Kumar’s distant relative and close friend, has shared that the video has brought distress to his wife Pallavi as she has been receiving a lot of calls. “Bhabhi gave me this link about the scene, which is actually from his movie. She is depressed. She is already fighting the court case where she is trying to prove Inder bhai innocent of rape charges. She has to look after their five-year-old daughter. On top of this, this video has come out. I don’t want to involve her as she is already going through a lot,” Dharna told Cinestaan.com.
He claims to have been present on the sets when the scene was shot. “Inder bhai had done this film long back. It’s a low budget film. I have already seen the film and I was also on the sets when it was shot. The scene is shot in a realistic way. Hence, it looks like he wants to commit suicide. I called up the director (Prem M Girdhanie) and requested him to announce in a press conference that this is a scene from his film. He has agreed to do it,” added Dharna.
A source close to the actor, who did not wish to be named, feels the makers of the film could be using the video as a publicity tool. “I feel someone from the film’s team has done this for publicity. The director has said that he has found out who is behind this and he has asked the person to remove the video. He hasn’t revealed the name of the person and the video hasn’t been removed yet,” said the source.
