In the viral video of the actor, who lost his father at a young age to suicide, urged people to avoid taking the extreme step.
“No matter how painful life gets, or the kind of difficulties you might have to go through, never commit suicide. It is heart breaking for the children. My father took his own life when I was 7 and my sister was 5. I have seen how difficult it was for my mother after that and the hardships she has gone through,” Vijay had once said in an interview.
Vijay had also talked about suicidal tendencies in children due to “pressure of studies”. “They are sent to tuition immediately after school. Remember, you aren’t even giving them time to think. Please don’t do that. Allow them some time to be free. As for adults, I want them to love themselves rather than be obsessed over wealth and success,” stated Vijay.
